Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig and Reds owner Bob Castellini will make a formal announcement tomorrow at 2:30 p.m.
The Reds haven’t hosted an All-Star game since 1988 when they played at Riverfront. This will be an excellent opportunity for baseball fans to experience Cincinnati and its latest attractions.
By 2015, tourists can either gamble at Cincinnati’s new Horseshoe Casino or visit The Banks for some fine dining. Also, tourists who want to visit the Bluegrass State can easily cross the river into Northern Kentucky and either watch a movie or visit the Aquarium at Newport on the Levee.
The Reds are one of America’s oldest sports franchises. They joined the National League in 1890.
In other Reds news, the team signed pitcher Armando Galarraga to a minor league contract. In 2010, while playing for the Detroit Tigers, he nearly pitched a perfect game. Unfortunately, Umpire Jim Joyce blew a call that cost Galarraga a perfect game.
Joyce admitted to missing the call after the game. For Galarraga’s career, he has won 26 games and has a lifetime 4.78 ERA.
