CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland’s rock ‘n’ roll roots will be on display for the 2019 All-Star Game.Inspired by the city’s deep musical history http://www.royalsfanproshop.com/authentic-justin-grimm-jersey , the team unveiled the logo for next year’s game — a red-white-and-blue guitar with a body bordered with baseball stitching.The blending of baseball and music is a not-so-subtle reminder to the rest of the country that Cleveland rocks.The Indians are hosting the annual mid-season event on July 9 for a record sixth time. And next year’s game coincides with the 25th anniversary of Progressive Field, which was known as Jacobs Field when it hosted the 1997 game.Owner Paul Dolan, MLB Deputy Commissioner Tony Petitti, Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and Indians manager Terry Francona, All-Star shortstop Francisco Lindor and first-base coach Sandy Alomar, who hit the game-winning home run for the American League in ’97, attended Tuesday’s ceremony that officially begins the countdown to next year’s game.Plans for the logo began shortly after the team was awarded the game.“We ask them what do they want to do with their mission and what they wanted to do was celebrate Cleveland as the birthplace and spiritual home of rock and roll,” said Anne Occi Burch Smith Jersey , MLB’s vice president of design, who has been involved in creating All-Star logos for 28 years. “They wanted to talk us through the game and the experience and how the idea of baseball and rock and roll go together within the central part of Cleveland culture.”Occi said one of the biggest challenges in designing a logo that can be used across a variety of platforms — from merchandise to uniform patches to being painted on the field.She’s especially proud of the 2019 logo, which she described as “unique.”It’s certainly not divisive.Under pressure from MLB and others, the Indians will no longer wear the contentious Chief Wahoo on their caps and jerseys starting next season. And while there has been speculation that Cleveland conceded to the move in order to host the All-Star Game, the team has insisted the timing was just coincidental.Dolan said there was no discussion about Chief Wahoo in designing the All-Star logo.“That wasn’t even on our radar,” he said. “One, we did this a long time ago. The typical All-Star logo is the skyline of the city, maybe with the ballpark in the background Blaine Boyer Jersey , and we said we would like to do something different and we would like to draw on music as being a theme and that was the extent of our instruction.”Cleveland, which also hosted All-Star Games in 1935, 1954, 1963 and 1981, has long been considered the birthplace of rock after local disc jockey Alan Freed coined the term “rock and roll.” The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame opened one year after Jacobs Field, and the two structures have been linked to the city’s downtown rebirth.The Indians and MLB officials have met with the Rock Hall about being incorporated into festivities around next year’s game.“You can see from the logo what we think the tie-in should be in Cleveland,” Petitti said. “We try to do something unique in every market we’re in, so music is what you can expect to see in 2019.” A look at what’s happening around the majors today:MOOKIE MANIAMookie Betts tries to follow up his first career cycle when Boston opens a series at Baltimore. The AL MVP contender homered off Ken Giles in the ninth inning Thursday to complete his first career cycle Trevor Cahill Jersey , though the Red Sox still lost 8-5. A trip to Camden Yards doesn’t figure to slow Betts — he’s hit 13 homers there in 35 games, by far his most in any stadium other than Fenway Park. Betts is hitting .347 with 27 homers, 59 RBIs and a 1.102 OPS this season.HEALTH SCAREDodgers closer Kenley Jansen has been sent back to Los Angeles after being hospitalized Thursday with an irregular heartbeat. Jansen has dealt with an irregular heartbeat in the past, and manager Dave Roberts said the right-hander will visit his cardiologist in LA. Roberts said the team is “holding out hope it’s not too serious.” Roberts didn’t know if the team would make a roster move in Jansen’s absence.CARLOS COMES BACKCarlos Correa is expected back in the lineup for Houston. The star shortstop has been out with lower back soreness since June 25. Correa completed a rehab assignment with Double-A Corpus Christi on Wednesday and was in Houston for a scheduled day off Thursday. Correa is batting .268 with 13 home runs and 49 RBIs.BOLSTERED BULLPENThe Athletics have charged into the AL playoff picture with a never-say-die lineup, but Oakland is looking to make a name for keeping leads, too. Fernando Rodney may join the team Friday after being acquired via trade from Minnesota on Thursday night. The longtime closer joins a deep bullpen led by Blake Treinen, Lou Trivino and former Mets closer Jeurys Familia. That quartet could prove pivotal if Oakland winds up in the AL wild-card game. For now, the group will try to lock down victories as the A’s open a series in Anaheim.GRAY DAYSJon Gray aims to continue a strong second half of the season when Colorado hosts the Dodgers. Gray struggled hard in the first half Melky Cabrera Jersey , even getting demoted to Triple-A in early July, but he’s been solid since returning to the majors. He’s 2-0 with a 1.52 ERA in his past four starts, and the Rockies haven’t lost with him on the mound since June 17. Kenta Maeda (7-7, 3.73) pitches for LA as the NL West contenders continue their four-game series.
