When the Minnesota Twins moved into Target Field, one of the goals was to land the 2014 Major League Baseball All -Star Game.  Now, it appears that goal has been achieved.

StarTribune.com is reporting that Major League Baseball is planning a Wednesday afternoon news conference at Target Field, where Commissioner Bud Selig officially will award the 2014 All-Star Game to the Twins, according to multiple people who have been briefed on MLB's plans.

It will mark the first time the Twin Cities has been host of an All-Star game in a major professional sport since the NHL All-Star Game was at Xcel Energy Center in 2004.

This will be quite an honor for the Twins, as well as Target Field, and will be great for the local economy.  Now my goal is to start saving money to afford tickets!
