The stakes are high in the All-Star Game these days as the winner essentially gives their league representative home field advantage in the World Series.
A Game 7 at home could mean all the difference with the championship on the line.
So be ready for a competitive game Tuesday night from Cincinnati’s Great American Ball Park. It’s the city’s 5th time hosting the Midsummer Classic and first since 1988.
First pitch is scheduled for shortly after 8 p.m. Eastern with television coverage provided by FOX.
The American League won the 2014 game 5-3. Mike Trout of the Los Angeles Angels was the MVP.
