The Minnesota Twins will host the 2014 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.
The Twins have scheduled a news conference at Target Field in Minneapolis for 4 p.m. local time today. MLB Commissioner Bud Selig will be among the attendees, the newspaper said.
The 39,504-seat Target Field cost $545 million and opened in 2010. The Twins played the previous 28 seasons in the Metrodome, which they shared with the National Football League’s Minnesota Vikings and the University of Minnesota’s football team.
The Twins hosted the All-Star Game in 1965 at Metropolitan Stadium and in 1985 at the Metrodome. The last All-Star game to be played in the area was the National Hockey League’s, at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul in 2004.
