All-Star Game

April 14, 2009

scott2Phoenix has apparently served its debt to Major League Baseball for being a National League city.

Back when Jerry Colangelo was wheeling and dealing to get the Diamondbacks franchise – he was thankfully adamant about being a National League club.

With MLB’s announcement that the Major League All-Star Game will be played at Chase Field in 2011, it is safe to say that our 10-15 year sentence unofficially imposed by “baseball” has been reduced to 11 years with good behavior. 

It’s about time.  And the trade-off of National League vs. American League was well worth the penance (not to be confused with pennants!)
