Mets could host 2011 All Star Game

Mark Feinsand at the NY Daily News, writes about the Mets and the possibility of Citifield hosting the 2011 All Star Game:

Shea Stadium, which hosted its only All-Star Game in 1964, won't get another shot at the Midsummer Classic, as MLB has already awarded the 2009 event to St. Louis. Selig will likely select an American League team for 2010, but he said the Mets would be in the mix to host the event in 2011 at their new ballpark.

"The Mets are a very prime candidate, no question about it," Selig said. "We will come back here to celebrate their new stadium."
