^ 30 teams but not 30 cities.

So, I guess Cincinnati just "got lucky," huh? ( Does it matter?)

I can feel the sarc, and it's well put. It was no accident, and it's not something to downplay as if we happened to be on some rotating schedule that we have the All Star Games coming to town.

When Castellini fights for something, his personality can be just this side of brawling. He hounded Bud Selig for years. “Rode him like a jockey,’’ in the words of one senior club official. “Tenacity is a great virtue’’ was the commissioner’s assessment.

Castellini wanted it for the town.

Not so. With the ASG here in 2015, Cincinnati will have hosted the game twice since the most recent time either the A's or Dodgers have hosted. In fact, the Dodgers, who play in a beloved stadium in media-darling LA, haven't hosted the game since 1980. Also, neither Miami (new stadium) nor Tampa Bay has hosted an ASG. Washington (new stadium) hasn't either.

The Angels and Pirates have both hosted multiple ASGs since Cincinnati last did. Pittsburgh hosted the game twice in 12 years (1994, 2006).

Sad thing about this is tickets to the exhibition will be well above what the average family can reasonably afford. I would really enjoy going to this event but with single tickets approaching 200 dollars per a 700WLW news report (if you can get your hands on them before the ticket brokers do) I doubt I'll be in attendance.

Yet another sporting event that is priced to cater to either the extremely wealthy or the financially inept willing to mortgage savings or bill paying ability to attend.

^ Since it's one game everyone will not be local.

You likely know this already, but I think they are expensive because they are tickets to the entire event, versus just a game.

No they are expensive just because they can be, just like the Super Bowl. It is the old law of supply and demand, small supply big demand. Kind of like the clubhouse at the Kentucky Derby or any other single day a year sporting event. Keep raising the price until you no longer fill the place then back down.

I agree with Zen_Master, it would be nice, but.

No, I saw a report on it on WLWT news. They are expensive because the tickets are for the ENTIRE event.

Please identify what is the Entire Event? Are you are talking about that concocted muscle bound Home Run Derby held the night before? Let's see how many of the ticket holders even show up for that. Or can you get out on the field and vie for autographs during batting practice - Wow! I am not trying to lambast you Tom, but the Main Event is the Main Event and everything else is also ran.
