According to MLB Commissioner Bud Selig, Yankees fans won't be seeing the Mid-Summer Classic at Yankee Stadium any time soon.

"I've got too many people ahead of them," Selig told the Baseball Writers Association of America.

In 2008, as homage to the closing of the old Yankee Stadium, the Yankees hosted their last All-Star Game.

There is no word on who is on the list in front of Yankee Stadium. Tropicana Field is the only American League stadium other than the new Yankee Stadium that has not hosted the All-Star festivities.

The All-Star Game will be played at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati next season. That leaves four other National League teams that have not played host to the game: Washington's Nationals Park, San Diego's Petco Park, Miami's Marlins Park, and Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park.
