So, what happens after the time that Rob Manfred's Baseball League Commissioner for Baseball called "the worst guarded secret in the world" & nbsp; finally comes to realization?

How many World Cup championships will win Brace Harper and Philies from the time they drop out of the 2026 All-Star match in the Citizens Banking Park? & Nbsp; Whether Rees Hoskins, Aaron Nola or any of his current teammates will be there to celebrate with him, the way Mike Schmidt, Larry Bova, Dave Cash and Bob Boone together with the lonely Fielder starter Greg "Bull" Luzinsky, when in the middle since 1976 the classic season was held by the Veterinarian, as part of the celebration of the 20th anniversary.

And while we are, will any of the other locals taste the champagne in the meantime? Did Eagles and Carson Wenz have the same excitement to the ultimate victory, while his former reserve strike turned Super Bowl LII MVP, Nick Falls?

Will the "Process" finally pay off in the title of Joel Embiad, Ben Simmons and Shekeri, probably after Brett Brown will fall off on their previous failures and will somebody else take his ship without a flashlight?

And will Alan Wigno succeed where 17 coaches from the late Fred Sherro failed and helped end the long drought at the Stanley Cup in the Flyers?

Or will they all have a seven-year itching, still eager for a kind of excitement, the champion Super Bowl Eagles gave it to the city more than a year ago? & Nbsp; That, of course, happened a decade after Phillips bought the fourth of the series of championship helplessness of this city in 2008.

Gazing in his 2026 crystal ball Phyllis owner John Middleton admits there really is no idea. & Nbsp; "Every year you start to want to win and work towards that goal," Middleton said in a yesterday's official announcement, appropriately set against the background of the Independence Hall. & Nbsp; "Whether that goal can be achieved is impossible to say."

Speaking of achieving the goals, both Baseball and the city of Philadelphia hope to actually cash when they begin to tabulate the bills for this extravagance. & Nbsp; Playing "Cradle of Freedom" as part of a semi-quincentennial America, 250you the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, will do so separately

Last year, Sitel Star in Washington brought more than $ 70 million in the area. & Nbsp; But these figures have fluctuated in recent years, at a peak of $ 191.5 million in New York, when it hosted Mets and $ 148.4 million when it was at the top of Yenkis in 2008.

Given Philadelphia generated nearly $ 56 million when the National League won the American League, 7-1, in 1996, it is difficult to predict exactly what jackpot will be for Phily seven years from now.

But Nick Debenney, & nbsp; president of the Philadelphia Convention and Visitor Bureau, is convinced that it will be a bonus, even if it is not at the top of the Democratic National Convention (DNA) 2016. & nbsp; "DNA was all week," said DiBeditis. "The hotels were packed in jam and there were 30-40,000, so it's great to win.

"On the other hand, DNC does not carry the same pizzas as a game with all the stars and the fact that it is connected to 250you The birthday of our nation that happened here in Philadelphia gives us the opportunity of marketing that is unheard of. "

According to DeBenedictis, the net dollars will not adequately reflect what it means, especially there should be celebrations in the championship in the meantime. & Nbsp; "What I'm talking about is exactly the direct effect of what these three days will be in terms of jobs created and the hotels fulfilled," he explains. & Nbsp; "But you saw what they did with Eagles who won the Super Bowl."

"We are still celebrating this." In Filipis, I hope that now with Breis Harper will be multi-annual winners of the division, if not a world champion, which will add to the Ol old game. "

Harper, although he did not dare look seven years ahead, seemed frankly excited. Since being hosted last year, winning Derby at home in front of domestic fans in Washington, he knows how he can be juicy in 2026.

"I am really happy and excited that the guys will enjoy the All-Star Game," said Harper, who took more than a thousand people out in the afternoon, many wearing the jersey, along with the scattered Chase Utley, Roy Haladay, John Crook and Mike Schmidt. "Just to celebrate this historic announcement is great.

"I'm happy I'm a six-time star and there's nothing more exciting. I'm looking forward to it more than ever in my new home town."

Fireman Larry Bova, who years later became a manager, was among the six Phillies all stars of the 1976 and 1996 games, played by a veterinarian who could tell him what to expect. & Nbsp; "It was incredible," Bova recalled, who flew in the solitary opponent of angels Frank Tanana in the National League's 6-0 victory. "They introduced the four together (Schmidt, Boone, Cash and himself).

"Bul (Luzinsky) begins, so he was presented separately." But this was the greatest feeling, except the winning of the World Series. "We faced Mark Poultry Friedrich who spoke with the ball.

"I'll never forget that Pit Rose came in and said:" I'll give him something to talk about. "The first pitch of the game he hit the line immediately above his ear."

Luzinsky had his own memories. & Nbsp; "I was lost on that great reception," said The Bull, the only Phil voted for the starter, along with five members of the Greater Red Machine, Rose, Joe Morgan, Johnny Wake, Dave Concepción and All-Star MVP, George Foster. "Then, after Friedrich stopped talking to the ball, I showed up.

"But it was probably one of the most terrible moments I had here." It's exciting to come back. "

In 1996, Ricky Botalico, the lonely Phil, worked without a score of fifteen points, while his hometown Mike Piazza beat the hopper with three intentions to return home to the MVP. & Nbsp; That year, "Derby for Domestic Behavior" was held the previous afternoon, and Barry Bondes won the field featuring Ken Griffith and young Mark McGear.

It has since turned into a production of the prime minister on Monday night, which is now only growing by paying players up to $ 1 million just to participate. & Nbsp; Bona wondered if by 2026 an antenna could reach up to $ 5 million.

Whatever it is, who will be chosen to play in the game itself, the feeling of this day was unanimous Philadelphia will make it unforgettable, & nbsp; & nbsp; & nbsp; "The game with all the stars is for the fans," said Hall of Fame Schmidt. & nbsp; "It's a celebration of our great game.

"On behalf of the players who played in the games here, I want to thank the Big League Baseball to give us the opportunity to host this game, to celebrate Philadelphia and to show people around the world what a great, great city is and sports city of Philadelphia ".

Especially if between now and 2026, instead of seven years of itching, there is even more to celebrate.
