The 2015 All-Star Game will be played in Cincinnati, reports John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer. Commissioner Bud Selig will be in the Queen City this week and is expected to make the announcement.

The Reds last hosted the Midsummer Classic in 1988, back when they played in Riverfront Stadium. They also hosted the event in 1938, 1953, and 1970. The NL won three of those four games. The 2013 and 2014 All-Star Games will be played in CitiField and Target Field, respectively.

The Nationals had also been pushing for the 2015 game, meaning they'll likely have to wait until 2017 since MLB alternates AL and NL host cities.
