After 39 years, the MLB All Star Game will return to Kansas City in 2012. The All Star Game is a 3 day event that includes a 5K run for charity, the famous home run derby, and of course the 2012 All Star Game itself. Kansas City's newly renovated stadium allowed them to have a shot at hosting the 2012 All Star Game, and it should prove to be very profitable for the Kansas City area and local Kansas City businesses. The All Star game has become much more important since 2011 as it now decides the location of the home field for the World Series. Kansas City is very excited to be hosting the 2012 MLB All Star Game and the Schedule for the 2012 MLB All Star game is as follows:
