Chase Field, Dbacks, to Host 2011 All-Star Game

By Scott Allen

Phoenix will finally host the MLB All-Star game.  The announcement was made official this afternoon at a press conference at Chase Field.

July 12, 2011 will be the date of the game.  Phoenix has been lobbying for years to get the game.  It is about time that baseball saw the light.  I realize it is hot here in the summertime, but everyone knew that already.  All new fields/teams at some point get this opportunity.  It’s too bad by the time the game is played, the Dbacks will be in existence for 13 years.  Better late than never right?
