Baseball’s Midsummer Classic is set for July 16 in New York, and QueenBeeTickets.com is pleased to offer discount MLB All-Star Game tickets for this event.
Germantown, Wisconsin (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
QueenBeeTickets.com has made 2013 MLB All-Star Game tickets available at discounted prices for baseball’s Midsummer Classic. Fans who purchase these discount MLB All-Star Game tickets will be headed to Citi Field, the home of the New York Mets, on July 16. The last time that MLB All-Star Game tickets for sale were available for a game hosted by the Mets occurred back in 1964, just the franchise’s third year as a franchise. Johnny Callison dramatically smashed a three-run home run in the bottom of the ninth to bring the NL team a 7-4 win that year.
Fans who do travel to Citi Field with their discount MLB All-Star Game tickets purchased from QueenBeeTickets.com will be walking into a first-class facility. The stadium opened with a disappointing 6-5 Mets loss to the San Diego Padres on April 13, 2009. The most historic moment in the stadium’s short history occurred on June 1, 2012, as Johan Santana tossed the first no-hitter in the team’s history in an 8-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
Fans have been purchasing MLB All-Star Game tickets for sale every year since the inaugural game in 1933. The American League took an early 3-0 lead and rode that momentum to a 4-2 victory at Comiskey Park in Chicago. The game had been intended to be a one-off affair. However, interest in it exceeded expectations so much that one was scheduled for 1934 and in every year after that with the exception of the 1945 game that had to be cancelled due to World War II travel restrictions.
One of the most exciting developments of this contest was the awarding of the winning team’s league champion home-field advantage in the World Series later that year. Following a controversial tie in 2002, this rule was enacted in 2003. Fans with 2013 MLB All-Star Game tickets will be rooting for their league to win this game and then for their club to advance to the World Series and take advantage of that All-Star Game victory.
Many of those who will purchase 2013 MLB All-Star Game tickets will have played a role in deciding who will start the contest as a fan vote determines every starter on both teams except for the pitchers. These are selected by players in both leagues. Those who purchase MLB All-Star Game tickets for sale can also play a role in deciding which players are the 33rd and final ones on each team. Players and managers fill out the remaining slots on the rosters.
Fans planning ahead already have their eyes set on purchasing MLB All-Star Game tickets for sale for the 2014 and 2015 games. These will be hosted by the Minnesota Twins and Cincinnati Reds, respectively. The last time Minnesota played host to this game was back in 1985. Cincinnati last played host to the game in 1988. Discount MLB All-Star Game tickets will likely be available at QueenBeeTickets.com for each of these games.
