Mid-Summer Classic @ Petco Park in San Diego
When the first Major League Baseball All-Star Game was held some 80 years ago, it was billed as a one-time event to help celebrate the Chicago World's Fair. But that game at the old Comiskey Park proved to be so popular, with nearly 50,000 MLB All-Star Game tickets being sold, that it became an annual event that we now know as the Midsummer Classic. That first event featured the likes of Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx, and you can count on the 2016 MLB All-Star Game to feature plenty of future Hall of Famers. GoTickets has your All-Star Game seats right now for the big game set to be played July 12, 2016, at Petco Park in San Diego.
This will mark the third time that the Padres have hosted the All-Star Game, as the old Jack Murphy Stadium and San Diego Stadium each hosted once. While those old ballparks gave fans some great memories, the completion of the PETCO Park was a welcome change for baseball fans in San Diego, and now it's ready to showcase one of the biggest sporting events of the year. You can be there with Major League Baseball All-Star Game tickets.
There have been some incredible streaks in the long history of the MLB All-Star Game. In the '30s and '40s, the American League dominated the game, but then in the in the '50s the National League started to take control. Then remarkably, from '63 to '82 the National League won every game except one, before the American League rebounded to make a run and they went more than a decade without losing. The National League had a mini-streak with three straight wins, but the American League bounced back to take three straight as well to win back home field advantage in the World Series. No matter who wins, it's sure to be another memorable renewal of the Midsummer Classic. GoTickets has your 2016 MLB All-Star Game tickets now, plus we'll also have Home Run Derby tickets.
