The 2014 Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be the 85th edition of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. It will be held at Target Field in Minneapolis, Minnesota, the home of the Minnesota Twins. This marks the third time that the Twin Cities have hosted the All-Star Game. Metropolitan Stadium hosted the game in 1965, and the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome hosted the 1985 Major League Baseball All-Star Game. It will be televised by Fox as part of a new eight-year deal.
Host selection 
The Chicago Cubs were the only other team bidding for the 2014 All-Star Game. Although typically the leagues rotate hosts every year (with 2014 being the American League's turn), Chicago hoped an exception would have been made for Wrigley Field to honor their ballpark's centennial (1990 was the last time Wrigley hosted the All-Star game). The National League had however already recently hosted consecutive all star games in 2006-07.
