Baseball`s "Mid-Summer Classic," tonight in Minneapolis, will have perfect weather for the best players of the National and American leagues to battle it out for World Series home field advantage. Highs in the low 70s, low humidity amid partly cloudy skies will make for perfect baseball weather.

This awesome baseball weather will be cooler and drier than most Mid-July summer days in Minneapolis. Minneapolis`s record high for July 15 is 102 degrees and its normal high temperature is 84 degrees. On top of that, mid-July can see periods of higher humidity and strong thunderstorms producing downpours in the "Land of 10,000 Lakes."

The All-Star game will be making its third Minneapolis visit and it will be the first one played at four-year old Target Field and the first Minneapolis All-Star game played outdoors since the 1965 edition played at Metropolitan Stadium. The last Twin City All -Star game visit was played inside the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in 1985. The National League won that game 6-1.

Target Field has all of the modern amenities found in new major league ballparks, including plenty of food and beverage choices. If you are going though, be sure the check out the staple of the Minnesota State Fair and a Target Field`s new fan favorite, fried wall-eye on a stick.
