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.
