2013 All-Star Game
« Topic Start: May 15, 2012, 10:08:13 PM »
According to the Worldwide Leader, $iti Field in New York will host the 2013 All-Star Game.  I guess MLB doesn't mind trash blowing all over the place, because that's what I've seen in many of the games I've watched.  Apparently, the announcement was supposed to be made months ago, but they had to work out arrangements for the FanFest venue and security with various agencies and departments.

I'm sure D'Backs fans wondered the same thing about Miller Park and Minute Maid Park.

The Mess haven't hosted the ASG since 1964 though (that was the year Shea Stadium opened).

I think we're looking at 2017 at the earliest for the ASG at Nats Park, since I think the Marlins were all but promised the 2015 edition if their new ballpark were completed - which it of course is.

Other NL clubs that have gone a while without hosting the ASG are the Dodgers (last hosted in 1980 - odd) and the Reds (1988 - and they won't get it again either as long as one Peter Edward Rose remains alive and/or officially proscribed). Washington of course last hosted it as an AL team in 1969; our predecessors the Expos hosted it in 1982 so it can be argued from that standpoint that the combined Expos/Nats franchise is certainly due.

Also, although their home clubs have hosted the ASG at prior facilities, Citizens Bank Park and Petco Park have yet to host the ASG - don't be surprised if either of these parks crowd in the queue for the next few years' editions.

Steve Sweeney used to do an impression of the Kevin White, the former mayor of boston, who had the s / sh speech impediment and refered to the place as "The Sh!tty of Boston."  "This sh!tty is a great sh!ttty!  You can go to Quinzee Mahket and get a chocolate chip cookie for a dollah!"  (back in the early 80s, that was a lot for a cookie).
