Our city of Kansas City is one ZANY place to be right now. The whole area (both sides of the state line) is full of ZEAL for the 83rd Allstar Baseball Game. Kansas City has been preparing for three years for this event.
All week there has been events going on to honor the game. We've had 5K runs, Fanfest where you could go all day and tour special events held by different groups and swing your own bat, get get your favorite players autograph. The Home Run Derby was a great event with Prince Felder winning again this year.

Tonight at the game on each seat is a white, red or blue T-shirt attached for the ticket-holder to wear.When photographed the stands are suppose to look like the American Flag
