I have to thank Twitter colleague, Craig Williams (@williamscraigm) for some tips and insight on this one! Those of you who are baseball fans may be aware that the 2016 MLB All Star game was recently awarded to the San Diego Padres! WAY COOL you might think, but sit back and think of years past and ask yourself, isn’t the All Star game usually the same week as the Annual ESRIUC which is also in San Diego? Bingo!! Indeed it is.
A little investigation turned up the following tidbits:
- The 2016 MLB All Star game is set to take place at Petco Park, San Diego – see Yahoo! sports
- The 2016 International ESRIUC is scheduled (tentatively) for July 11-15, 2016 – See ESRI
- This from the Bleacher Report… “The game, which is scheduled for July 12, 2016, will mark the second consecutive All-Star Game in a National League park. Great American Ball Park, the home of the Cincinnati Reds, is set to welcome the league’s best players this year.”
