The 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Game was the 84th edition of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. It was held on Tuesday, July 16, 2013 at Citi Field in Queens, New York City, the home of the New York Mets. This was the first time that the Mets have hosted an All-Star Game since 1964, the team's inaugural season at Shea Stadium, and the ninth time the All-Star Game was held in New York City. The game was last held in New York City in 2008, when the old Yankee Stadium hosted it in its final season before being demolished. It was televised in the United States on Fox.
The host site was reportedly to either be at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., home of the Washington Nationals or at Citi Field, the home of the Mets since 2009. The official announcement was made on May 16, 2012 at New York City Hall. The Mets unveiled the logo for the 2013 All-Star Game on August 7, 2012.
Balloting for the 2013 All-Star Game starters began online April 24 and ended on July 4. Fan voting also took place in each MLB stadium, beginning May 7 (at the latest) and ended on June 28. The top vote-getters at each position (including the designated hitter for the American League) and the top three among outfielders, were named the starters for their respective leagues. The results were announced on July 6.Chris Davis was the leading vote-getter with 8,272,243 votes, while Yadier Molina led the NL with 6,883,258 ballots.
After the rosters were revealed, a second ballot of five players per league was created for the All-Star Final Vote to determine the 34th and final player of each roster. The online balloting was conducted from July 6 through July 11. The winners of the All-Star Final Vote were Steve Delabar of the Toronto Blue Jays (AL) and Freddie Freeman of the Atlanta Braves (NL).
