Twins and Target Field land the 2014 All-Star Game
Several media outlets continue to report the Minnesota Twins will host the 2014 All-Star Game.
Major League Baseball will hold a news conference Wednesday to announce that the 2014 Midsummer Classic has been awarded to the Twins, according to online reports . Baseball commissioner Bud Selig will make the announcement at the Twins' Target Field.
"We hope that (an official announcement is) imminent," Twins CEO Jim Pohlad told the Star-Tribune. "The amount of communication with Major League Baseball has picked up, but ultimately the commissioner decides."
The Twins moved to open-air Target Field, which seats 39,504, in 2010. It would mark the first time the Twin Cities host MLB's All-Star Game since 1985, when it was played at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome.
