For me, it depends on the MLB Commissioner and its Staff, really.

How about Kansas City's Kaufman Stadium. It hasn't hosted the All Star Game since 1973.

Why not go back to 2 ASGs each year: 1 at an AL venue, 1 at an NL venue, just like 1959-62?
I would give the second ASG to...
2006: Anaheim
2007: St. Petersburg

and give both ASGs in 20__ to...
2008: Bronx, Queens
2009: Kansas City, St. Louis
2010: Oakland, Miami
2011: Boston, Philadelphia
2012: Cleveland, Cincinnati
2013: Seattle, San Diego

Then, give home field advantage in the World Series based on the following:
If both games are won by the same league, that league gets home field advantage
If both games are split, use the following tie breakers:
1-Most combined runs scored
2-First run scored

On second thought, switch the AL site ASGs in 2006 and 07, that way, we have San Francisco and Anaheim hosting both games in 2007-the 5 year anniversary of the Angels' first ever World Championship, a 7 game decision against the Giants

2006: St. Petersburg
2007: Anaheim

Two dilutes the one. Cities won't bid so hard for them.

Or...

One (the one where all the owners meet) will be more sought after than the other, making the other one look like a cheap publicity stunt.

Besides, owners don't want to take another three days out of the schedule. They're already worried that they've stretched the schedule to the limit.

A cheap publicity stunt? Come on, the 2006 and '07 games that are already awarded are both at NL sites. With 2 ASG's, we could have doubleheaders (an all-division games format for each day with pre-scheduled DH's would be suggested) to make up for the 3 days removed from the schedule for the 2nd All-Star Break, anyways. The season won't have to extend its start and/or end dates unless MLB allows its players into the Olympics, should baseball be reinstated. Also, it will give more players a chance to play in an ASG-as in, those good players who were snubbed out of the first game, could be selected to play in the 2nd. I agree, cities would not go as hard after them as they are now, and stadiums would have a better chance to host an ASG each year. And think of the TV ratings. If they can get back to a high level, think about 2 ASG's having very high ratings. And fans would pay to see 2 ASG's, to see their favorite players in at least one game.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!!!!

No. Owners don't want doubleheaders. Owners want maximized revenues.

Second-chance all-stars? Baseball isn't a charity.

Fans already have sensory overload. There's not a demand for a second all-star game. Frankly, I'm wondering about the single game anymore.
