The Minnesota Twins may be front-runners to get the 2014 All-Star Game at Target Field, as hinted at by Bud Selig.
The 2012 MLB All-Star Game at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City was a great success, as it usually is for the host teams and their cities. Could the Minnesota Twins be getting a shot at hosting an All-Star Game of their own in the near future? According to a report by Charley Walters on TwinCities.com, it looks like the 2014 All-Star Game may indeed be hosted by the Twins at Target Field, as hinted at by commissioner Bud Selig during a visit to the Twin Cities:
"I can't say anything right now, but let me say this: They've made a very good bid, and everybody knows how I feel about the Twin Cities," Selig said. "That's the only hint I'll give."
If the Twins were to be granted the 2014 Mid-Summer Classic, it would be the first time since 1985 and the first time ever at newly opened Target Field. The Twins have hosted the All-Star Game twice before in their history.
