IF THERE'S BASEBALL, '97 ALL-STAR GAME WILL BE IN CLEVELAND
Published December 8, 1994
The Indians are expected to announce today that they will host the '97 MLB All-Star Game at Jacobs Field. Acting MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, AL President Gene Budig, Cleveland Mayor Michael White and Indians owner Dick Jacobs are all expected to attend today's ceremony. The team applied for the '97 game in August after being turned down as host for the '95 game, which will take place at The Ballpark at Arlington. The '96 game will be played at Veterans Stadium. This would be the 5th time Cleveland has hosted the game (Paul Hoynes, Cleveland PLAIN DEALER, 12/7).
