The Reds will host the 2015 All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park, the city's first since 1988, a person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press.
Commissioner Bud Selig will discuss the decision on Wednesday in Cincinnati, where he's also appearing to promote Major League Baseball's latest urban youth academy, according to the person speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcements had been made.
The Cincinnati Enquirer first reported the decision.
The Reds have been trying to acquire the All-Star Game since they opened Great American Ball Park in 2003. They hosted the game twice at Riverfront Stadium -- two weeks after its opening in 1970 and again in 1988. The 1970 game featured Pete Rose bowling over Indians catcher Ray Fosse to score the winning run.
