Published March 13, 1995
NL President Len Coleman sent a memo to clubs assuring them there will be an All-Star Game, whether it is made up of replacements or regulars. The game will be held at The Ballpark in Arlington, TX, the first time the Rangers will host the Game (Gerry Fraley, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 3/9). HELLO, CLEVELAND: Cleveland is "very close" to being named the site of the NBA's 1997 All-Star Game, according to Burt Graeff of the Cleveland PLAIN DEALER. Portland, Boston, and Sacramento are the other cites which have expressed interest. One NBA source tells Graeff: "It's virtually a done deal. I expect an announcement to be made soon." The Indians will host the '97 MLB All-Star Game at Jacobs Field (Cleveland PLAIN- DEALER, 3/9).
