Alan Gilbert on the mound … Behind him, the New York Philharmonic … Skipper Joe Torre looks on from the dugout … Mariah Carey steps into the batter’s box … Home run! Everyone wins when this stellar lineup assembles for the 2013 MLB All-Star Charity Concert — especially Superstorm Sandy Relief, the event’s beneficiary. The concert — on Central Park’s Great Lawn on Saturday, July 13, three days before the All-Star Game at Citi Field — is free, but tickets are required. Visit AllStarGame.com/Concert for general-admission seating beginning this Wednesday, June 26.
