According to John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer, the Reds will host the 2015 All-Star Game. MLB commissioner Bud Selig is expected to make the announcement when he’s in Cincinnati on Wednesday.
This will be the first All-Star Game at Great American Ballpark and the first in Cincinnati since 1988 at Riverfront Stadium. Many speculated that the Nationals would host the 2015 Midsummer Classic, but the decision to give it to the Reds likely takes them off the board until 2017.
This year’s All-Star Game will take place at Citi Field, home of the Mets, while the 2014 All-Star Game will be hosted by the Twins at Target Field.
