No matter whether the Mets are contending in 2013 or not, Citi Field will be the center of the baseball universe for one week during the summer. And now you have a shot to join the party.
Registration for the opportunity to buy All-Star event ticket strips starts Thursday (as in today). The registration process only entitles you to a chance to be picked at random to actually purchase an All-Star events strip. That strip includes a ticket to each All-Star Week event, two MLB All-Star FanFest tickets and one Official All-Star Game program.
The All-Star events encompass the (1) actual 84th MLB All-Star Game on July 16, the (2) Gatorade All-Star Workout Day on July 15, which features the Home Run Derby and All-Star Batting Practice, and (3) Taco Bell All-Star Sunday on July 14, during which the SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game and Taco Bell All-Star Legends & Celebrity Softball Game occur. The All-Star FanFest is being held at the Javits Center from July 12-16.
In addition, MLB is seeking 2,000 community volunteers, age 18 and older, for the festivities.
