CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -
It's official. The 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star game will be in Cincinnati.
MLB Commissioner Bud Selig made the announcement about the 86th Midsummer Classic on Wednesday afternoon at Great American Ball Park.
It will be the fifth All-Star game for the city, and the first since 1988. It will also be the first ever for Great American Ball Park. The Reds have been trying to acquire an All-Star game ever since GABP opened in 2003.
The Reds also hosted the game in 1970, the year Riverfront Stadium opened. That game featured Pete Rose bowling over Indians catcher Ray Fosse to score the winning run.
"The Midsummer Classic will be a remarkable opportunity to celebrate Cincinnati's rich baseball tradition, which parallels the history of the national pastime itself," said Selig.
"This is a red letter day for us. We couldn't be more proud," said Reds CEO Bob Castellini.
The game will be a six-day event that will begin the Thursday before the game, which is on a Tuesday.
The Mets will host the game at Citi Field in 2013, and the Minnesota Twins' Target Field will host in 2014.
The game is expected to have an $80 to $100 million economic impact.
