Charlie Walters of the Pioneer Press is reporting that the MLB and commissioner Bud Selig will announce that the Minnesota Twins will be hosting the 2014 All-Star Game at Target Field.

For those wanting tickets to the festivities, much of the process is not yet known, however Twins season ticket holders will have first priority to ticket for the All-Star Game, Home Run Derby and All-Star Sunday. Target Field can hold just over 40,000 fans.

Fans better be willing to break out their wallets if they want to attend, as Walters also reports that the face value of tickets for the game is expected to be several hundred dollars.

The Twins last hosted the game at the Metrodome in 1985. They have also hosted the game in 1965.
