San Diego - Today Mayor Kevin L. Faulconer released the following statement on Major League Baseball's decision to select the San Diego Padres to host the 2016 All-Star Game at Petco Park:

"San Diego is a city full of unlimited opportunities and this news is proof that great things are on the horizon. The 2016 MLB All-Star Game will once again put San Diego on the world stage, and give San Diego fans a front-row seat to some of today's best ballplayers. I want to thank the Padres for working closely with the city to make this happen. I also want to thank Commissioner Selig and Commissioner-Elect Manfred for their crucial support."
