El Paso - The eyes of minor league baseball fans will be focused on El Paso July 8, 9 and 10 for the 2019 Triple-A All-Star Game.
Gates for the 2019 Ronald McDonald House Charities Triple-A All-Star Game will open at 5:30 p.m. The game is slated to air on the MLB Network and Chihuahuas All-Star broadcaster Tim Hagerty will call the game on 600 ESPN El Paso.
"It's an honor to host Triple-A Baseball's Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, Minor League Baseball's premier and most exclusive events, here in El Paso at Southwest University Park," said MountainStar Sports Group President Alan Ledford, "and we are thrilled to have national organizations like Ronald McDonald House Charities and Jarritos as our title partners."
Started in 1988, the 32nd edition of the game will showcase the best players of Triple-A Baseball's Pacific Coast (PCL) and International Leagues. Since 1998, the International League has bested the PCL with a 12-9 record with the PCL the winners in 2017 & 2018. All-Star Game alumni include current San Diego Padres Wil Myers and Ian Kinsler, as well as Derek Jeter, Chase Utley and Joc Pederson, to name a few.
Individual tickets and bundled packages for both events are available and on sale now, but they are going fast. Group leaders are able to purchase a group to the All-Star Game and/or the Home Run Derby. Supplies are limited so fans are encouraged to buy now so as not to miss out on these once-in-a-lifetime events. Tickets can be purchased at the Southwest University Park box offices, at epchihuahuas.com or by calling (915) 533-BASE.
