  • All-Star Game 2008

    This is way down the road:

    The 2006 All-Star Game is in Pittsburgh's PNC Park. '07 will be in San Francisco.

    But since it is the last year of YankeeStadium wouldn't it be nice to have a farewell All-Star Game '08 in the Bronx. The New YankeeStadium will open across the old one in 2009.

    It would give the AL another turn because all the new NL Ballparks are lining up (Petco/Citizens Bank/Great American/Busch/"the Ballpark in D.C.") to have their All-Star Game.

    your thoughts...

    I think that the next one for the AL will likely be Kansas City since they haven't hosted since 1973, a full 35 years AFTER they hosted their first game. That team also needs the revenue from the game and the festivities more than any other potential host in the AL.

    New York's new park will likely get the 2010 game.

      I do think that Yankee Stadium will be in 2008, GABP in 2009, a possible new Twins park in 2010, not sure about 2011, but a Tampa Bay game in 2012.
      Unlike most other team sports, in which teams usually have an equivalent number of players on the field at any given time, in baseball the hitting team is at a numerical disadvantage, with a maximum of 5 players and 2 base coaches on the field at any time, compared to the fielding team's 9 players. For this reason, leaving the dugout to join a fight is generally considered acceptable in that it results in numerical equivalence on the field, and a fairer fight.

        My ASG site speculation:

        2008 - Yankee Stadium
        2009 - Chase Field
        2010 - Angel Stadium*
        2011 - GABP
        2012 - Kauffman Stadium*
        2013 - Post Park (Washington)
        2014 - Minnesota Twins Park
        2015 - Petco Park
        2016 - Rogers Centre
        2017 - Busch Stadium

          Kansas City will host the All Star Game sometime between 2010 and 2014 according to Mr. Selig.

            I'm leaning towards 2010, they haven't hosted since '73 and are due.

              Tampa Bay won't have an ASG until they do something with that dump that they call Tropicana Field

                how bout this,
                wouldn't it be great for the premiere franchise in baseball to get the ASG in 2008 to close the stadium and get the 2009 ASG to open the new stadium....i mean the NL is getting the ASG for 2 years in a row why not give it to the AL for 2 years
