NEW YORK (AP) - Baseball greats will parade past Grand Central Terminal and a convention center will be transformed into a baseball-theme park as part of the festivities for the first All-Star Game at the new Mets' stadium.
Plans were announced Wednesday at City Hall for events leading up to the game July 16 at Citi Field in New York. Mayor Michael Bloomberg was joined by Mets star David Wright and former Mets Edgardo Alfonzo, John Franco and Mookie Wilson.
Fans will choose from some of the biggest names in baseball when All-Star voting starts May 7.
The new Mets' stadium opened in 2009.
