Baseball’s 87th All-Star Game will be held this year on July 12 at San Diego’s Petco Park. Hosted by the Padres, they have chosen Padres Hall of Famers Trevor Hoffman and Dave Winfield as their official spokesmen. The National League team will be trying to end a three game/year skid. If you are in town for the game, take time to visit the new San Diego Central Library. It is a short walk from the ballpark and houses the the second largest collection of baseball books in the world; second only to the Baseball Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.
