It's Official: Twins Will Host 2014 All-Star Game

For some time now, it's hardly been a secret that the Minnesota Twins will host Major League Baseball's 85th All-Star Game in 2014. Wednesday, Commissioner Bud Selig and the Twins made it official, with a press conference at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Previously, the Twins hosted two All-Star Games: in 1965 at the late Metropolitan Stadium, and in 1985 at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome. When the Twins built Target Field, which opened in 2010, there was a general assumption that the franchise would host another All-Star Game before long, as the Commissioner essentially makes that promise to every franchise that does get another stadium built.

This year, the Kansas City Royals hosted the All-Star Game at recently renovated Kauffman Stadium; next year, the New York Mets will host the All-Star Game in their new CITI Field. There's no official word yet about 2015, but reportedly the Cincinnati Reds, Miami Marlins and Washington Nationals are all bidding to host the game.
