This weekend thousands of baseball enthusiasts will converge on downtown Minneapolis and the rest of the Twin Cities for the 2014 MLB All Star Game at Target Field. We will see a large economic impact especially in bars and restaurants.

-75 Million: Estimated dollar amount on the Minneapolis economy

-160,000: Estimated out of town visitors

-35 Million: Estimated viewers watching the 2014 MLB All Star Game
