Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig is expected to join Mayor Michael Bloomberg on Wednesday to announce that Citi Field has been selected as the site for the 2013 All-Star Game.
Old Yankee Stadium enjoyed the honor four times, most recently in 2008, and Shea Stadium had the honor just once, in 1964. Citi Field will be the first of baseball's new stadiums in New York City to host baseball's most star-studded weekend.
Queens Borough President Helen Marshall was thrilled with the idea.
"Having the All-Star game at CitiField will bring world-class atenton to our great city and borough, increasing business and economic activity and providing a boost to our local economy," Marshall said.
