It has been the dream of millions of youngsters for generations - to grow up and don the uniform of a Major League ballplayer.

It's a dream that comes true for only a small sliver of those millions - and even fewer achieve the honor that comes with being named to baseball's All Star Game.

The 86th Major League Baseball All Star game will take place July 14 at Great American Ball Park.

With Major League Baseball's All Star Game coming to Great American Ball Park in July, the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum has opened an exhibit honoring the 100 Reds who have been members of National League All Star teams.

This week, Cincinnati is hosting the National Sports Forum.   Jackie Reau with the Greater Cincinnati Sports Corporation says it's another opportunity to get the area more national, and international attention.

"There are about a thousand people here from really all over the country, representing all the four major league sporting bodies, as well as a number of colleges, universities, sporting properties, and also vendors who supply the sporting industry," Reau says.
