CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Representatives from Major League Baseball begin to arrive in on Cincinnati Tuesday for another round of All-Star game planning meetings.

While Great American Ballpark is the centerpiece of the big game, this meeting will largely focus on the community.

Officials said they expect the group from MLB to tour potential event spaces, including the Duke Energy Convention Center and area parks.

Meetings like this occur on a regular basis, but a lot of specific details are still being worked out as the July 14 event approaches.

The group from MLB will be in town Tuesday and Wednesday, with some members staying through week.

The All Star game is expected to bring tens of thousands of people to town and pump close to $60 million into the Cincinnati economy.
