Major League Baseball's 2015 All-Star Game will take place at Great American Ball Park.

Sources have confirmed that Major League Baseball's 2015 All-Star Game will take place at Great American Ball Park, home of the Cincinnati Reds, according to John Fay of The Cincinnati Enquirer:

Major League Baseball's All-Star Game will return to Cincinnati in 2015, baseball sources confirmed.

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig is scheduled to make the official announcement on Wednesday during an event for the newest MLB Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Cincinnati.

The 2015 event will mark the fifth All-Star game Cincinnati is hosting, the city's first since 1988. It will also be the first at Great American Ball Park.

Fay notes that the All-Star Game is a much bigger event than it was in 1988. The Home Run Derby is nationally televised and sells out each year, while the five-day FanFest draws thousands.

The All-Star game alternates between American and National League cities each year. 2013's contest will be held at the New York Mets' stadium, Citi Field, and the Minnesota Twins, who call Target Field home, will host the event in 2014.
