Baseball commissioner to be in KC for 'major announcement'

Friday, June 11, 2010 | 7:34 p.m. CDT

KANSAS CITY — The Kansas City Royals have confirmed that baseball commissioner Bud Selig will be in town next Wednesday, apparently to formally award the 2012 All-Star Game to Kansas City.

The Associated Press and other news outlets have reported that Kansas City will get the 2012 game as a reward for Jackson County residents passing a sales tax to pay for a $275 million renovation of Kauffman Stadium.

A Royals spokesman said Friday the commissioner would have a "major" announcement at the stadium, but declined to say what it was about.

A call to Selig's office was not immediately returned.
