The Metropolitan Transportation Authority is looking to take riders out to baseball's All-Star game next week with extra train service to Citi Field.

The Long Island Rail Road will run extra trains to and from the Mets-Willets Point station starting this Sunday.

The extra service will get fans to all of the All-Star events including the Futures Game on Sunday, the Home Run Derby on Monday, and the big game on Tuesday.

Direct service to the ballpark runs from Penn Station, Woodside, and all stations on the Port Washington Branch.

Super-express number 7 trains will run after the Home Run Derby and following the final out of the All-Star game.

Those trains will only make five stops between Citi Field and Times Square.
