Picture-perfect weather will greet Major League Baseball fans and players as they converge on San Diego for the 87th Midsummer Classic on Tuesday night.
All-stars from the American and National leagues will begin their quest for home-field advantage in the World Series at 5:00 p.m. PT in Petco Park.
“Gorgeous weather is expected in San Diego for the All-Star game Tuesday evening,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Michael Doll said.
Fans from across the country will not have to worry about bringing along rain gear or sweltering in the heat as clear skies and comfortable conditions will be the name of the game.
Mainly sunny conditions will prevail on the field during the first few innings before shadows begin to expand as the sun dips below the ballpark, Doll explained.
Temperatures will gradually fall from the lower 70s F at first pitch to the upper 60s by the end of the game.
