2013 All Star Game?

The New York Mets have emerged as the likely host for baseball's All-Star game in 2013.

Yankee Stadium, entering its final season, is the site of this year's game on July 15, with the 2009 All-Star game scheduled for St. Louis.

The Los Angeles Angels are the likely host in 2010, with Arizona the leading contender for 2011 and Kansas City a strong possibility for the following year.

The Mets move from Shea Stadium to Citi Field next season.
``We were informed by the commissioner that after moving into City Field, we would have an All-Star game but no date has been set,'' Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz said Thursday following similar comments by chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon to ESPN.com.
The All-Star order has been widely expected since commissioner Bud Selig said last July that he planned to announced two or three All-Star sites within two months. However, no sites past 2009 have been announced.
