Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) - The Cincinnati Reds will host the 2015 All- Star Game.
Baseball commissioner Bud Selig and Reds president and CEO Bob Castellini revealed the news during a Wednesday afternoon news conference at Great American Ball Park.
"We thank Commissioner Selig and Major League Baseball for the honor of hosting the 2015 All-Star Game," Castellini said. "Commissioner Selig's staff and our hard-working, very talented organization will team with the City of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Northern Kentucky and the entire region to produce a jewel event Reds fans will remember for the rest of their lives. Tomorrow, we will begin turning our All-Star Game dream into reality."
Cincinnati has not hosted the All-Star Game since 1988 at Riverfront Stadium. It will be the fifth Mid-Summer Classic for Cincinnati and the first at Great American Ball Park, which opened in 2003.
Riverfront Stadium was also the site of the 1970 All-Star Game, while Crosley Field also welcomed the contest in 1938 and 1953.
This year's All-Star Game will be at Citi Field in New York, while the 2014 game will be held at Minnesota's Target Field.
