CINCINNATI (AP) - The Reds have started counting down to the 2015 All-Star game, which will be played in their own yard.
Commissioner Bud Selig awarded the All-Star game to Cincinnati on Wednesday, rewarding years of persistence by Reds owner Bob Castellini. The city hadn't hosted an All-Star game since 1988.
It'll be the fifth time that the game in played in Cincinnati, which was the stage for one of the most memorable All-Star moments. Pete Rose bowled over Indians catcher Ray Fosse to win the 1970 game at Riverfront Stadium.
The Reds have tried to get the game back since they moved into Great American Ball Park in 2003. It'll be in New York this year, followed by Minneapolis in 2014.
