Check out week's highlights at AT&T Park and San Francisco
By Becky Regan / MLB.com
The Futures Game will be followed by the Legends and Celebrity Softball Game at approximately 5 p.m. on Sunday. Celebrities probably can't turn two like the Futures, but who doesn't want to see stars with a little dirt on their faces?Some of the celebrities expected to appear are Kevin Dillon, who plays Johnny Drama on HBO's "Entourage," actor/comedian Dane Cook, 49ers legend Jerry Rice, San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, actor Rob Schneider, late-night talk-show host Jimmy Kimmel and actress Alyssa Milano, who's also the creator of MLB apparel line Touch. Sometime between checking out the Hollywood stars and the baseball All-Stars, find time to hit up Fisherman's Wharf. A trip to San Francisco wouldn't be complete without a trolley car ride to Fisherman's Wharf. The wharf is a great place to get a clam chowder bread bowl and do some souvenir collecting. Don't miss the gang of seals that hangs out next to Pier 39. Monday is the start of the All-Star events everyone will be waiting for, the Home Run Derby and the All-Star Game. The Home Run Derby begins at 5 p.m. Monday at AT&T Park. Baseball's best sluggers will try to outslug each other at baseball's toughest home run park. The Giants' Barry Bonds has a slight advantage. If you're in San Francisco after the derby, grab a beer and some food at Lefty O'Doul's, located at 333 Geary St., near Union Square. The pub is shrouded with pictures of baseball's greatest legends, who seemingly smile at you from the walls as you enjoy a drink. Tuesday is the main event, the 78th MLB All-Star Game, at 5 p.m. It starts with an All-Star Game Red Carpet Show along The Embarcadero from 10 a.m. PT to noon, followed by the game. This is what the whole week was leading up to, so don't miss it. Locate a good sports bar, and enjoy a meeting between baseball's best.
