NEW YORK (WFAN) - It appears that the Mets and Citi Field will finally have their turn…officially.

Major League Baseball will announce that the Mets will host the 2013 All-Star Game on Wednesday at a City Hall news conference, according to the New York Post.

Rumors of Citi Field hosting the Midsummer Classic started even before Citi Field replaced Shea Stadium in 2009, so the news is by no means a shock. The Mets have only hosted one All-Star game in the franchise’s history, back in 1964 when Shea Stadium first opened.

The last time the All-Star Game was held in New York City was in 2008, when it was played in the old Yankee Stadium’s final season.
