Report: Cleveland Indians’ Progressive Field to host 2019 MLB All-Star Game

The 2019 Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be hosted by the Cleveland Indians in Progressive Field, according to a cleveland.com report by Zack Meisel.
Progressive Field has been renovated several times since last hosting the game in 1997 and right now the Indians are off the heels of a World Series appearance, so the decision by MLB here would make a lot of sense.
This would break a four-season streak of National League clubs playing host to the Midsummer Classic, as the Reds and Padres hosted the last two while the 2017 All-Star Game is in Marlins Park in Miami and 2018 is set for Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.
Traditionally, the leagues alternate venues for the All-Star Game, but we saw a departure here in this midst of this four-year stretch.
