The Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Bud Selig and NYC Mayor, Michael Bloomberg announced today that the 2013 MLB All-Star Game will be held at Citi Field in NYC, home of the New York Mets. New York, which has hosted more All-Star Games than any other city in the country, just hosted the Midsummer Classic in 2008. That time, it was held at famous Yankee Stadium, the final year of the historic ballpark.
All eyes will be on the Big Apple yet again come 2013. It will be quite a change in scenery from this years game, which will be held at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City. The game, which will be played on July 10, will mark the 83 time that baseball’s biggest stars will gather to be apart of a game that now decides home field advantage for the World Series.
