Baseball’s biggest stars will return to the museum’s big screen this July in Cooperstown at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum’s annual All-Star Gala.
Visitors will be able to watch the 2013 Major League Baseball All-Star Game live from Citi Field in New York City at the All-Star Gala at the museum’s Grandstand Theater on Tuesday, July 16. Fans can enjoy the game in ballpark seating as they watch Fox’s live television coverage of the 84th Mid-Summer Classic.
The Hall of Fame All-Star Gala provides an evening of family entertainment with prizes, snacks and more for baseball fans of every age. Doors to the Grandstand Theater will open at 7:30 p.m., with game coverage beginning at 8 p.m.
Fans will be treated to hot dogs and ballpark-style snacks, along with a limited edition commemorative All-Star Gala button for all guests in attendance. Scorecards will be distributed to fans, and official All-Star Game programs will be available for purchase. During the game’s inning breaks, fans will be able to compete in a variety of games and trivia contests for an opportunity to win door prizes. The All-Star Gala is made possible by the support of Price Chopper supermarkets.
