With the announcement of the Mets receiving the All Star game for next year I’ve been thinking, ok maybe stewing over the fact that the Reds haven’t received one in the new ball park. It seems like most teams get an All Star game soon after they build a new stadium but Great American was opened in 2003 and still hasn’t gotten one. I don’t understand why MLB wouldn’t want the second biggest event in baseball in the city that had the first pro baseball team. Great American is a beautiful ballpark and would be a great place for the MLB to show off. From what I’ve seen they have all but decided on Minnesota for 2014 which means the earliest Cincinnati could get it would be 2015, so at best Great American will be 12 years old and I would like you to tell me why Cincinnati would have to wait a dozen years for an All Star Game.
