Tonight Kansas City, MO, takes center stage in the baseball world, as they host MLB’s All-Star Game. A little known fact about Kansas City is that they also hosted the NFL’s Pro Bowl in 1974. However, the Pro Bowl was hosted at Arrowhead Stadium, and Kansas City’s MLB All-Star Games have been hosted at Municipal Stadium, and Kauffman Stadium.

There have been only six stadiums that have played host to a major professional football all-star game and a MLB All-Star Game. Check out the list below.
