The logo was unveiled and presented by numerous individuals including Reds president and CEO Bob Castellini, MLB executive vice president of business Tim Brosnan, Cincinnati mayor John Cranley and Hamilton County Commission president Chris Monzel. 

"In 49 weeks, on Tuesday, July 14, Major League Baseball couldn't be prouder than to bring the Midsummer Classic back to one of the game's most historic cities, Cincinnati," Brosnan said.

The logo itself includes the Cincinnati "C" embedded behind the writing of the All-Star Game. Also included is the Reds mascot, Mr. Redlegs, which is placed near the top of the logo. It will be the fourth time the annual All-Star Game will be held in Cincinnati, the last one being in 1988. 

Castellini discussed how important baseball is for the city of Cincinnati and how the sport has been a part of the residents' lives for some time.

"This has been a baseball town for generations," Castellini said. "It's extremely generational here in Cincinnati. Kids leave, go to other cities, take jobs elsewhere. When they call home, the first thing they ask their parents, 'How are the Reds doing?'"

The stadium has continued to be upgraded including cosmetic upgrades, the riverboat deck aboce the batter's eye in center field, and more attractions in the concourse. The city itself has undergone a major facelift since the new ballpark was been built. 

Such a historic moment for the city of Cincinnati has given its leaders a chance to make this a once in a lifetime opportunity for many fans and residents of the area. Focus has turned toward Cincinnati in preparation of the next Mid-Summer Classic which is sure to turn heads.
