HITTING THE TARGET: In Minnesota, John Vomhof Jr. noted the Twins and MLB on Tuesday unveiled the logo for the '14 MLB ASG at Target Field, which "features a silhouette of Target Field with the downtown skyline behind it." There also is an "alternate logo that depicts the state of Minnesota" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 7/30). Twins President Dave St. Peter said that ticket prices for next year's game "likely won't be released until the fall," but added that pricing is "expected to be comparable to what was charged" for last year's ASG in K.C. In Minneapolis, Michael Rand notes tickets per MLB policy are "sold only in strips" that contain "one official game program, two tickets to All-Star Fan Fest and one ticket each to the All-Star Sunday events (including Futures Game), Home Run Derby and the game itself." A single strip in '12 ranged from $377-1,077 (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 8/1).
