Cleveland plays host to the 90th All-Star Game at Progressive Field.  The Midsummer Classic has brought players, fans and media here packing hotel rooms and downtown attractions.  It's another chance to put Cleveland on a national stage.  We'll discuss the economic impact of the game and how the All-Star Game and the events surroudning it can help shape the impressions of Cleveland outside the region. Then, this isn't the first time Cleveland has hosted the All-Star Game.  We'll hear from the contributors of a  new historical book. Plus, a new book looks at how baseball parks stand at the crossroads of urban and rural America.
