Crosley Field

Cincinnati Reds

Once every generation or so, Major League Baseball chooses Cincinnati to host its All-Star Game, the “mid-summer classic” that brings together the best players in one ball park.

When the first pitch is thrown Tuesday night from the Great American Ball Park mound by the National League starter, it will be the fifth time Cincinnati has hosted the All-Star Game since it began at Chicago’s Comiskey Park in 1933 and the first in the ball park that has been the Cincinnati Reds’ home since 2003.

Cincinnati Baseball: Crosley Field is a one-hour special that features studio interviews along with music of the period and audio highlights from Red Barber, Joe Nuxhall, and Johnny Vander Meer.
