All-Star Game being hailed a success by city officials

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Cincinnati City Manager Harry Black says the All-Star Game was a rousing success which he describes as "an absolute home run."

The All-Star Game was the culmination of months of planning and hard work and Black says the people who pulled it off "made it look easy."

Black says he's been getting lots of positive feedback from visitors which he says is due in part to the entire city working together.

Black also credits Cincinnati police with keeping the city safe during All-Star events.

Downtown district commander, Captain Mike Neville says there were no acts of violence during the five day event and only a few minor crimes were reported.  He says the entire effort was well prepared and he says nearly every officer that worked during All Star events put in extra hours sometimes on their normal days off.

Neville added that the entire city stepped up the challenge.
