This month, for the first time since 1997, Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game returns to Ohio. Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati will host baseball’s best and brightest for the 86th Midsummer Classic. Hosting the All-Star Game presents a platform for the host city/region to promote not only its ballclub but also its local culture
On Monday the Cleveland Cavaliers agreed to terms with free agent point guard and former Cavalier Mo Williams.

Both teams actively improved in the offseason: Chicago signed Pau Gasol and Cleveland added Kevin Love and LeBron James. It was never clear which round, but most national pundits agreed the road to the Eastern Conference crown would
When it comes to college football, most of the Buckeye State is united in the state’s namesake. Professional baseball, however, is a different story. The Cleveland Indians, Cincinnati Reds, Detroit Tigers, and Pittsburgh Pirates can all claim portions of Ohio as their base.
