SAN DIEGO --Everywhere you walked in the Gaslamp District Monday night you saw people wearing Cubs, Cardinals, Mets, Phillies, Orioles and just about every MLB jersey on the streets.

Visitors and locals alike have been streaming into downtown San Diego since Friday to be part of the All-Star Game buzz.

Places like the Tivoli Bar and Grill have been packed.

"Business has been great, really great" said Roy Romero, Tivoli's owner.

Romero went on to say not only is his business benefiting from the All-Star game, but the entire city of San Diego. Restaurants and bars are reporting robust business due to the influx of fans into the area.

“The Major League Baseball All-Star Game will have a significant, positive impact on San Diego,” Joe Terzi, president and CEO of the San Diego Tourism Authority said.

“Not only will there be an enormous economic impact that's expected to reach $70 million, but the event also offers a chance to showcase the destination to hundreds of millions of viewers,” Terzi said.
