Target Field's All-Star Game Tickets Won't Be Easy To Obtain

The Twins will likely sell the majority of tickets to the 2014 All-Star Game to season ticket holders, and will likely force prospective buyers to also purchase tickets to the weekend's ancillary events.

Bud Selig will announce the 2014 MLB All-Star Game will come to Minnesota Wednesday afternoon, and it's already becoming clear that tickets to the event will be tough to find.

Charley Walters of TwinCities.com writes that season ticket holders will have first access to buy tickets for 2014's Midsummer Classic, with a "very limited" amount available to the public. In addition to that, tickets won't be made available individually to the event. Instead, prospective buyers will have to get tickets for each of the three events to be held at Target Field: the game itself, as well as the Home Run Derby and Futures Game.

It's not surprising that the All-Star game, which hasn't visited the Twin Cities since 1985, will be a hot ticket. It's not also not surprising that those in charge will attempt to squeeze as much money as possible out of the event. Walters also writes that Twins' president Dave St. Peter expects the event will generate more than the $60 million of economic impact reported in Kansas City after this year's game.
