CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Dozen's of celebrities have come to the Tri-State to help celebrate the MLB All-Star Game.  

Snoop Dogg, Macklemore, are just some of the few who say there is no place they would rather be right now than the Queen City.

"Being here in the home town it's really cool and we are playing with legends and Hall of Famers and Snoop Dogg, it's just like where am I? I don't believe it's real," Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson said.

Hometown celebrities like Josh Hutcherson and Nick Lachey came to play softball with some of the best in the game in the Celebrity and Legends Softball Game.

"The beauty of this is it's all fun. Nobody wins. Nobody loses. There is no score is there? Is there a score?," Lachey said.

Even some Reds legends like Aaron Boone, Eric Davis and Sean Casey all came to feel the excitement again.

"To be a part of the All-Star festivities in a small way here, this is...I feel like a little kid today," Boone said.

Even funny man Rob Riggle from 21 Jump Street decided to show up and crack a few jokes as the American League captain.

"Right now I'm just worried about the safety of my players," Riggle said.

The celebrity favorite? Hands down, Snoop Dogg who already found one of his favorite Cincy hot spot.

His answer? Alabama's fish.

When they all took the field for the game, the crowd went wild, despite some inexperience at the plate. It was a game of fun for the stars, the legends but most of all the fans it was about the excitement.
