Yankee Stadium to Host 2008 All-Star Game

From the New York Post:

The home stretch for Yankee Stadium figures to be the 2008 season, and part of it is likely to include the All-Star Game.

The Midsummer Classic hasn't been in The Bronx since 1977, but 31 years later, Yankee Stadium is the probable revenue.

On seven prior occasions the All-Star Game has been held in New York, with Yankee Stadium having it three times (1977, 1960, 1939), the Polo Grounds twice (1942, 1934) and Shea Stadium and Ebbets Field once each (1964 and 1949 respectively).

In those seven games, the American League had won four times, though the NL had won the three most recent contests in New York. The AL hasn;t lost an All-Star Game since 1996.

The Yankees had four All-Stars last season: Robinson Cano, Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Alex Rodriguez.

The replacement for Yankee Stadium figures to open for the 2009 season.

    What would be better then a World Series win to end the great history of the House that Ruth Built?

    I've never seen an All Star game in the Bronx during my lifetime, so this is gonna be really fun.

    I'm pretty excited too. Although MLB has yet to make it official, I am saving up for this event.
