Okay, this is spectacular.
I had the privilege of covering the 2008 All Star Game in Yankee Stadium. All 15 innings of it. It was one of the highlights of my career. And I expect next year will top it.
But to have all the events that go along with the weekend, the Futures Game, the Home Run Derby- it is a spectacular turn of events.
So mark your calendars now: July 16, 2013.
The Mets last hosted the game back in 1964, a game memorably won by Johnny Callison’s home run.
Other notable moments from the press conference at City Hall included Mike Bloomberg channeling the Twitter account El Bloombito, and awkwardly high-fiving Mr. Met.
The announcements will be forthcoming, I’m sure. This is one to savor and enjoy.
