It was a big day for the Cincinnati Reds and the city of Cincinnati Wednesday morning as the city and team officially unveiled the 2015 Major League Baseball All-Star Game Logo which is scheduled to take place at Great American Ballpark next season.
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.
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.
"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.
