MLB slow in announcing future All-Star games

It has been known for sometime that the 2014 MLB All-Star Game has been awarded to the New York Mets and Citi Field.

Beyond that, who knows where the next games will be.

The 2014 game might go to the Minnesota Twins and Target Field. Every American League team with the exception of Tampa Bay has hosted an All-Star Game since the Twins hosted in 1985 at the Metrodome.

Baseball has been alternating leagues hosting the All-Star Game. But they may get away from that to get all of the newer stadiums in the rotation starting in 2015.

The Peoria, Illinois native homered for the Minnesota Twins on Sunday and it was another tape-measure job.

His sixth-inning blast into the upper deck in right-center field helped the Twins over the Kansas City Royals, 4-3. The ball traveled an estimated 490 feet, the longest homer in the two-year history of Target Field in Minneapolis. It was career homer #596.

Thome has hit three of the longest home runs in Target Field’s history and six of the top eight.

Always a fan and media-favorite around Major League Baseball, Thome has played for Cleveland, Philadelphia, Chicago White Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers.

AL DIVISION SERIES: Target Field or not, Twins simply can’t beat New York

When the American League playoff series field was finally set, everybody said the Twins would use their new home, Target Field to its advantage against the Yankees.

Two games in and two losses and the Twins may not get back to Target Field for Game 5.

Andy Pettitte and the Bronx Bombers stumbled through September and made the playoffs as the AL wild card champion. Most observers said they’re old and would go out the first round.

Right now, the Yankees are sitting in the drivers seat with a 2-0 lead over Minnesota.

New York has brushed aside the Twins home-field advantage as Pettitte turned in a brilliant postseason performance on the mound with seven innings and Lance Berkman had two big hits in the 5-2 win.

A former Houston Astros star, Berkman belted the go-ahead homer in the fifth and the tie-breaking double in the seventh against Carl Pavano, sending Minnesota to its 11th straight postseason loss. Eight of those losses are to the Yankees, whom the Twins have been ahead of in every game.

AL DIVISION SERIES: Yankees rally past Twins, 6-4

The Minnesota Twins played their first outdoor postseason game in Minneapolis since 1970. They had hoped a move from the Metrodome to their brand-new home stadium, Target Field would give them the boost they needed to finally beat the mighty New York Yankees.

Target Field was not enough to help the Twins.

Mark Teixeira hit a tiebreaking, two-run homer in the seventh inning and the New York Yankees rallied past Minnesota in Game 1 of the AL division series. It was the Twins’ 10th straight postseason loss.

Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia had trouble with his control and labored most of the game, which was played at night. Closer Mariano Rivera recorded the final four outs as the Yankees came back from a 3-0 deficit against Francisco Liriano.

The Yankees are 10-2 against the Twins in the playoffs since 2003.

Michael Cuddyer homered, doubled and drove home two runs for Minnesota.
