Arizona was just awarded the 2011 All-Star Game. The Reds are pushing to get the nexd one available for an NL city. That's in 2013.
“We’re pushing hard on it,” said Karen Forgus, the club’s senior vice-president of baseball operations. “We’re actively pursuing. Bob Castellini is always telling (Commissioner) Bud Selig what a great place Cincinnati is.”
One of the reasons the club so aggressively sought the Civil Rights Game was to show off the city to MLB.
“We want to illustrate how great of a city Cincinnati is,” Forgus said.
