"The city agreed to
additional vendor restrictions when applying to host the game back in 2012. Each city who hosts, including

the interests of the vendors as well as the
safety of our visitors."

that in a Sept. 16, 2011 letter to Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig
when the city was bidding for the game, then City Manager Milton Dohoney, Jr. said the city agreed to a
"clean zone." Dohoney said the clean zone would be passed by council
on or before Feb. 1, 2015.
"The city agrees that

the MLB All-Star Game since the 90s," adding, "This practice is implemented only in a
limited area of the city where MLB All-Star events take place.
The clean zone in
Cincinnati is designed to protect fans and official All-Star retail
partners from counterfeiters and the sale of unofficial All-Star product."
