The 85th MLB All-Star Game will be played Tuesday, July 15 at Target Field in Minneapolis on FOX at 8 p.m. ET.
It will be the third time the Twins host the Summer Classic. The NL won the previous two games in Minnesota, 6-5 in 1965 at Metropolitan Stadium — Chicago Cubs third baseman Ron Santo knocked in the eventual winning run in the seventh — and 6-1 in 1985 at the Metrodome.
Overall, the NL leads the series 43-39-2. The AL won last year — 3-0 at Citi Field, home of the New York Mets — to snap a three-game skid.
