Tonight the New York Mets will host their first All-Star Game since 1964 in Shea Stadium. That game has a rather special Phillies moment of course, which leaves me wondering if Domonic Brown or Cliff Lee might play a part in another bankable moment in franchise history. It's hard for me to believe the Mets have only hosted the All Star Game once before this season, while the Yankees have hosted the game twice since then. Heck, the Phillies have hosted the game twice since 1964 as well and I'm here asking when they might get a third. It's a question that has no answer of course, but I would venture to say Philadelphia's opportunity may not be all that far away if the Phillies have any interest in serving as the host for the midsummer classic. It seems as though baseball likes to showcase the top venues in the game, which makes sense. If you are going to showcase your sport's top stars, why not do it in one of the many state-of-the-art venues? Baltimore hosted the 1993 All-Star Game
