The 2016 Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be the 87th edition of the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The game will be hosted by the San Diego Padres and played at Petco Park. It will be televised nationally on Fox.

The host city was announced on January 15, 2015 by then-Major League Baseball (MLB) Commissioner Bud Selig. This will be the third time the city of San Diego will host the All-Star Game and the first time since 1992.[1]

Host selection[edit]

The Baltimore Orioles were also in line for hosting the game. Former Commissioner Bud Selig said Baltimore was a prime candidate to host the event, but the Padres ended up with the game. Because this game would have been played in an AL ballpark in typical circumstances, the National League team will be designated as the visiting team and the American League team will be designated as the home team for the game.
