Our interview with St. Peter begins roughly halfway through the podcast.
He talks about the best events of All-Star week, the concert at TCF Bank Stadium, the color run, the parade down Nicollet Mall, the Futures Game, the Home Run Derby and the rest of the party.
How were season ticket sales affected by the All-Star Game, and how will that change once the game is a thing of the past? What is St. Peter most looking forward to?
Also, are there tickets available for any of the events for the week? Where can fans go to find tickets or seating for any of the All-Star events? (Hint: AllStarGame.com.)
How will the Twins and the city of Minneapolis benefit from hosting All-Star week at Target Field? Glen Perkins and Kurt Suzuki will be in the game, but several others with Twins ties will be involved, too. What upgrades have the Twins made to Target Field to make the All-Star Game as good as it can be?
Before the St. Peter interview, Phil Mackey and Derek Wetmore had a couple Shock Tops at Mason's Barre in downtown Minneapolis, and chat about their expectations for the All-Star Game. What do you want to see in this year's game and surrounding events (read: party)? Does Justin Morneau stand a chance to make it in the Final Vote? #VoteMorneau. Did Brian Dozier get robbed? How cool is it that Pat Neshek made it?
Special thanks to Mason's Barre and Shock Top.
