Yankee Stadium could go out with a bang.
The New York Post reported Saturday that the Yankees and Major League Baseball have discussed the possibility of Yankee Stadium hosting the 2008 All-Star Game. The Yankees will move into a new Yankee Stadium in 2009.
"There have been talks about it being a way to honor the last year of the stadium," a source told the Post.
Pittsburgh will host the 2006 All-Star Game and San Francisco has been chosen to host in '07. The Post reported that after two years in an NL park, the All-Star Game will likely be awarded to an AL team for '08.
Yankee Stadium has hosted the contest three times, in 1939, 1960 (the second All-Star Game) and 1977.
