Sox ask to host 2012 All-Star Game

BOSTON -- When the Red Sox spend the 2012 season commemorating the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, there's a chance there will be a centerpiece event that would have emotions stirring throughout the game.

Red Sox president/CEO Larry Lucchino confirmed on Thursday that the club has already requested to Major League Baseball that Boston have an upcoming All-Star Game at Fenway, preferably in 2012.

"We have made a request to have another All-Star Game at Fenway Park in light of the upcoming 100th anniversary and the changes that have taken place," Lucchino said Thursday during part of a media availability in which the club was announcing Year VIII improvements of Fenway.

MLB has already announced that the 2009 All-Star Game will be in St. Louis and the 2010 Midsummer Classic will be at Angel Stadium in Anaheim.

There has yet to be any decision on 2011-2013.

If Lucchino and the Red Sox have their druthers, Fenway will be in the mix.

"That issue is resolved by the Commissioner's Office, above my pay grade," quipped Lucchino.

But unlike the 2008 All-Star Game at Yankee Stadium, this would not be a sendoff for ancient Fenway.

Lucchino feels that the Red Sox will maintain residence at Fenway for years to come.

"I think it's the little engine that could, and it has proven to be that in the last several years in particular," Lucchino said. "We think it can continue to be as long as it is full of passionate Red Sox fans."

Under previous ownership, the Red Sox had planned to build a new Fenway Park. But once the new group led by John W. Henry, Tom Werner and Lucchino took over in February 2002, the priority shifted to renovating the ballpark and making it more modern each year, something the club has been successful in doing.

The All-Star Game was last held at Fenway Park in 1999.

Didn't they just host it? No way they deserve it just 13 years after they last had it when so many other teams have waited longer. Hell, the Diamondbacks have never had it despite the fact they play in a new ballpark....well it's not so new anymore as the team is 10 years old.

Dumb idea. The had it in 1999, so the earliest that they should be allowed to have it is in 2025.

Over/under on 2018 for an All-Star game at New Yankee Stadium? I'll take the under rant

But at least that is at two different parks



It is asinine to have the same stadium host an All Star Game only 13 years apart

On the first part yes, but it furthers the idea that NY/BOS is better than everything else. Tiger Stadium was pretty historic but it didn't get a send-off. Neither did Comiskey, etc. Yankee Stadium did so they better wait a long time for the new stadium to host the game.

And yes, it certainly is.
