Twins to unveil 2014 All-Star Game logo Tuesday

Major League Baseball, the Twins and the Twin Cities will host a news conference at Target Field on Tuesday to unveil the official logo of the 2014 All-Star Game.

The news conference is scheduled to begin at 2 p.m. CT at home plate before the Twins' 7:10 p.m. game against the Royals at Target Field. Next year's Midsummer Classic will be played on July 15.

Among those slated to attend are 2013 All-Stars Joe Mauer and Glen Perkins. They'll be joined by Twins owner and CEO Jim Pohlad, Twins president Dave St. Peter, Minneapolis mayor R.T. Rybak and St. Paul mayor Chris Coleman. Also scheduled to attend are MLB executive vice president Tim Brosnan, vice chair of the Minnesota Ballpark Authority Board of Commissioners Martin Sabo and chair of the Hennepin County Board of Commissioners Mike Opat.

Next year marks the third time that the All-Star Game will be held in Minnesota. The Twins hosted the 1965 Midsummer Classic at Metropolitan Stadium in Bloomington, Minn., and the 1985 All-Star Game at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. The 2014 game will be the first at Target Field, which opened in 2010.

St. Peter and two dozen other members of Minnesota's front office attended this season's All-Star Game festivities at Citi Field to get a sense of what's in store for them next year.
