Given the comments made today by Bud Selig about the New York Mets and Citi Field, it would be a surprise if the ballpark didn’t land the 2013 All-Star Game.
In his annual All-Star Game briefing with the national media, Selig made the following comment:
“We went back to Yankee Stadium because it was the last year of what I believe was the most famous cathedral in American sports, and maybe the world. And I think it was appropriate to honor. Frankly, to be candid with you too, I did it because of George [Steinbrenner]. But the Mets have built a great new ballpark and, yes, they deserve an All-Star Game.”
