Baltimore Orioles fans will likely have a chance to see baseball's best and brightest come together for the 2016 version of the MLB All-Star Game.
Per Bob Nightengale of USA Today, Camden Yards is poised to host its first midsummer classic since Ken Griffey Jr. crushed a ball off the warehouse on Eutaw Street way back in the 1993 Home Run Derby:
The #Orioles are the leading contender to get the 2016 #MLB All-Star Game, while the 2017 All-Star Game will go to the #Marlins or #Padres
— Bob Nightengale (@BNightengale) December 12, 2014
Most of the new stadiums that have cropped up since used Camden Yards as the inspiration for their design schemes, so it will be apropos to see things come back full circle in 2016.
As Nightengale also points out, the San Diego Padres and Miami Marlins are both in the running for 2017, with the Washington Nationals' much-publicized bid to host the game likely to be pushed back to the end of the decade.
