Watch The All Star Game at The Zoo! by Kansas City News

If you didn't get tickets to the 2012 MLB All Star Game at the K, you can watch the All Star Game at the Kansas City Zoo. That's right, the FOTZ (Friends of the Zoo) staff have come up with another great party idea, an All Star Game watch party complete with a giant screen TV, food, and drink specials. If we didn't already have our diamond seats reserved we would be joining the fun at The Kansas City Zoo to watch Billy Butler and the American League All Stars swat the ball around Kauffman Stadium. Here's more from The Kansas City Zoo:

Kansas City Picked to Host 2012 MLB All-Star Game

Bookmark and Share 

Kansas City has been officially selected to host the 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star game. The decision was announced by MLB commissioner Bud Selig today before the Royals’ inter-league game against the Houston Astros. The official announcement ends over a year’s worth of speculation that Kansas City would be picked to host the event in 2012.

The recent renovations made to Kauffman stadium were a boost to Kansas City’s chances of landing the game. Kansas City approved a $225 million bond issue to fund stadium renovations, which were completed before the 2009 regular season.

Kansas City has not hosted an all-star game since Kauffman Stadium’s opening season in 1973. The event, which features the all-star game as well as a full week of festivities including the home run derby, will generated an estimated $60-65 million dollars in revenue.  This means great things for Kansas City Restaurants and most likely The Power and Light District.

Anaheim, CA will host this season’s event. Current ticket prices for the 2010 event are starting at well over $400, which signals an expensive experience for any Kansas City locals who are interested in attending. Phoenix, AZ will host the all-star week during the 2011 season.
