Stan Kasten unaware, confident about All-Star Game
In a telephone conversation Saturday morning, Team President Stan Kasten said the Nationals have not been informed by the league about hosting the 2015 All-Star Game but remain confident Nationals Park will house the game in the near future.
"We haven't heard anything from anybody about it," Kasten said. "We're certainly hopeful it comes to Washington. We continue to push to get an All-Star Game, and I'm sure we will soon."
Kasten's comments by no means challenged the veracity of last night's report. Washington, a high-profile market with a new stadium, makes perfect sense as an All-Star Game host. Sooner or later, the District was going to get the game.
Kasten owns personal experience in bringing baseball's showcase to his team. In 2000, while running the Atlanta Braves, Kasten helped bring the All-Star Game to Turner Field, which had opened in 1997.
