Did Rob Manfred shade Bud Selig with comments about Dodgers hosting ASG?

2018-Register-Pajaronian

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred released a statement Wednesday following the announcement. There has been speculation for months that the Dodgers were in the running to host the All-Star Game and related events during All-Star Week.

The Los Angeles Dodgers will be finally be hosting the MLB All-Star Game for the first time in 40 years, and commissioner Rob Manfred seems to be nodding back to his predecessor as to why it took so long.

Dodger Stadium will host the 2020 All-Star Game, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press.

"I think the best thing about LA is the position of this franchise in this community", Manfred said during an announcement on the field at Dodger Stadium.

The All-Star Game was most recently played in Southern California in 2016, when it was held at Petco Park in San Diego.

As well as the 1980 game, the Dodgers also hosted the baseball showpiece in 1959 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

This means the All-Star Game will be played at an NL ballpark five out of six years.

On Tuesday, team co-owner Earvin "Magic" Johnson tweeted, "We as the Dodgers ownership group are extremely excited to host the 2020 MLB All-Star Game". The Los Angeles Angels hosted in 2010 but...well, that was one in Anaheim.
