Mets Citi Field 2013 All-Star Game Announcement Expected Tomorrow

Citi Field: Expected host of the 2013 All-Star Game.

Per Ken Davidoff, Major League Baseball is expected to announce tomorrow at City Hall that the Mets and Citi Field will host the 2013 All-Star Game. This is hardly breaking news, as the Citi Field ASG has been rumored for a while and most new major league ballparks get to host an All-Star Game within their first few years anyway, but we've been anxiously awaiting an official proclamation since the Mets moved into their new park in 2009 so it'll be nice to finally have it in writing.

The Mets last hosted an All-Star Game in 1964, Shea Stadium's first season. The National League won that game, 7-4, on a walk-off, three-run home run by Phillies right fielder Johnny Callison. The Mets were terrible that year — they ultimately lost 109 games — and their lone All-Star representative was Ron Hunt, who was the starting second baseman for the senior circuit.

If nothing else, hosting the All-Star Game at Citi Field might even make me marginally interested in watching it. Kudos, Bud Selig!
