MLB makes it official: the 2015 All-Star Game will be in Cincinnati

8 Comments

This was reported the other day, but now it’s official:

 

The announcement was made by Commissioner Selig who is in Cincinnati today to make another announcement as well: Major League Baseball’s $1.5 million to the development of the Reds MLB Urban Youth Academy.  It’s a new facility that will provide free, year-round baseball and softball instruction and educational programs to kids in the Queen City.

2015 will mark the All-Star Game’s first visit to Cincinnati since 1988. Which I still think of as Chris Sabo’s coming out party. Chris Sabo just turned 51. I feel very old.
