Bud Selig announced today that the Kansas City Royals have been awarded the 2012 All-Star Game, according to SI.com. 

The game is a reward for Jackson County voters approving a sales tax increase in 2006 to fund more than $250 million in stadium renovations. Selig had promised before that vote that an All-Star game would be held in Kansas City between 2010 and 2014 if the tax were approved.

This should be great for the Kansas City area.
