Cleveland is playing host to the 90th Midsummer Classic, with the annual exhibition kicking off at 7:30 PM on Tuesday, July 9.

The game may not mean as much as it used to with the advent of daily interleague play around the country, and it no longer has bearing on home field advantage for the World Series, but it still remains a great opportunity to watch some of the greats of the game take the field in competitive action.
