I bet the State House in Annapolis and City Hall in Baltimore are already licking their chops over the possibility because of the revenue stream.  Hopefully, they won't crew it up like they did with the Grand Prix.

 

 

 

"When baseball commissioner Bud Selig said recently that Baltimore was a "very, very viable candidate" to host the 2016 All-Star Game at Camden Yards, those who have sought for the Midsummer Classic's return to the city for years received a boost to their hopes.

The Orioles organization isn't commenting publicly on Selig's words, however, because it doesn't want to be viewed as campaigning for the annual event, which has been held in Baltimore twice. The American League won, 9-3, in 1993 at Camden Yards in the second season of the stadium's existence. And the AL also won, 4-3, in 1958 at Memorial Stadium, four years after the club came to town from St. Louis.

The World Series would be nice, but they're actually talking about the All-Star Game.

I would think they'd go to National's Park before they do Baltimore again. :confused:

That could very well be as they alternate AL/NL, ones not dependent on the other.

one of the NL teams will get it next year. that leaves TB & NY. TB isn't getting the AS game, no way, never, no how. and NY recently hosted it in the old stadium, so their turn won't come up again for awhile. if they try to go with a city that has had the longest stretch since the last time they hosted it, then it would be between Oakland, Toronto, Baltimore. Oakland won't be given the AS game. their dump is worse than TB. they have raw sewage in the clubhouse.  :D

I doubt they'd have the All Star game at the Skydome either these days.

I can't see why not. Toronto is a wonderful city and the skydome is still in great shape. Rodgers Comm. has invested lots of money to renovations over the last 3 years.

The skydome reminds me of the Simpsons monorail.  It was nice for a minute, everyone oohed and aahed, then everyone realized it sucked.

I'm basing my opinion on when I went in 2000, so I may be out of date.  It just seemed like a huge, empty arena instead of a ballpark.  I do agree Toronto is a great city.
