every Reds home game. But next season for a six day period around the All-Star Game festivities,

lose out on thousands," said Barnes.

much parks within that area they're trying to put us out of," said Barnes.
Sunday, spokesperson for the city of Cincinnati, Rocky Merz, told FOX19:
"The city agreed to
additional vendor restrictions when applying to host the game back in 2012. Each city who hosts, including
Minneapolis this year is required to agree to them. We have worked to minimize
the impact on our vendors who are an asset to the city and enhance the game day
experience. We are working hard to balance the requirements of MLB,
the interests of the vendors as well as the
safety of our visitors."
In June FOX19 reported
that in a Sept. 16, 2011 letter to Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig
when the city was bidding for the game, then City Manager Milton Dohoney, Jr. said the city agreed to a
"clean zone." Dohoney said the clean zone would be passed by council
on or before Feb. 1, 2015.
"The city agrees that
MLB has the exclusive right to sell, distribute and otherwise promote the sale
of MLB merchandise and products of MLB sponsors and/or partners in the clean

League Baseball also tells FOX19, "Clean zones have been implemented for
the MLB All-Star Game since the 90s," adding, "This practice is implemented only in a
limited area of the city where MLB All-Star events take place.
The clean zone in
Cincinnati is designed to protect fans and official All-Star retail
partners from counterfeiters and the sale of unofficial All-Star product."
