Padres submit bid to host All-Star Game at Petco Park

utsandiego.com — Major League Baseball's All-Star Game last traveled to San Diego in 1992, when Tony Gwynn and Ted Williams met for the first time. It was quite a scene, two of the city's greatest icons converging on common ground. That July day at Jack Murphy Stadium may never be recreated, but it certainly has been reimagined.

After three days in the Valle, I may have never gotten an answer to my rhetorical question, but I did determine that Mexico's most dynamic wine region isn't like Napa Valley - or like anywhere else.
