Bud Selig Makes It Official: 2012 MLB All-Star Game Coming To Kansas City

MLB Commissioner Bud Selig made it official announcing Kansas City would be hosting the 2012 All-Star Game.

Selig made the announcement at Kauffman Stadium Wednesday night.

"The competition among our 30 clubs to play host to an all-star game has become incredibly competitive in recent years," Selig said.

As SB Nation's Royals Review suggested, it's more like the Royals bought this All-Star Game with the renovation done to Kauffman stadium.

Also in attendance was Mayor Mark Funkhouser (he received the least amount of applause) and Royals Hall of Famer John Mayberry.
