All-star Game Newsbeat
Monday, February 16, 2015
...So I’m not buying what MLB is selling: the idea that the Orioles’ legal entanglement over Mid-Atlantic Sports Network TV-rights fees with the Washington Nationals and MLB is not at least a contributing factor to their wait to host the All-Star Game again. That just doesn’t ring completely true to me…

The 2017 All-Star Game will be played at Marlins Park.
Officials are expected to announce within the week that Miami has been awarded the Midsummer Classic for the first time, multiple sources with knowledge of the agreement confirmed Tuesday to the Miami Herald.
Marlins and Major League Baseball officials refused to comment.
The awarding of the 2017 event will mark the end of a long and bumpy road to bring the All-Star Game to South Florida.
The Marlins tried — and failed — in their bid to host the 2015 All-Star Game at their new, retractable roof ballpark, which opened in 2012.
Major League Baseball awarded the 2000 All-Star Game to South Florida, only to yank it away and hand it to Atlanta following the dismantling of the 1997 World Series team.

Baltimore was supposed to get the 2016 All-Star Game. This is what happens when you mess with the king, Baltimore…
Here are the details behind Baltimore getting shut out of their All-Star Game.

It certainly would have been nice to host Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game at Camden Yards in July 2016, but Baltimore has reportedly fallen out of contention for the Midsummer Classic and all the economic benefits that make it a highly coveted civic event.
No one is saying exactly why the city has gone from being called a “very, very viable candidate” by baseball commissioner Bud Selig in May to being all-but-officially out of the picture, but you can draw your own conclusions…
This year’s All-Star Game will be held in Cincinnati and MLB has — with very few exceptions over the past 82 years — scheduled the game at American League and National League stadiums on an alternating basis.
So, it’s curious that San Diego’s Petco Park now appears to be the most likely 2016 All-Star host and Camden Yards is being overlooked.

We heard a couple of weeks ago that Petco Park in San Diego was likely to host the 2016 All-Star Game. This conflicted with an earlier report that Camden Yards in Baltimore would play host.
Today Roch Kubatko of MASN confirms that, no, Camden Yards will not be the site and cryptically adds that “Major League Baseball doesn’t seem to have much desire to do the Orioles any favors these days.”
It has to be cryptic, I assume, because Kubtako’s employer is at the center of the reason why MLB doesn’t want to do the Orioles any favors. As we’ve noted, MASN — which is owned and controlled by Orioles owner Peter Angelos — is in pitched litigation with MLB and the Washington Nationals over rights fees for Nats broadcasts on the network both teams share. Just a couple of weeks ago MASN won a discovery motion in the case, and you don’t have discovery disputes in cases where everyone is being all amicable with one another.
