Pippins Announce Added Festivities At All-Star Game Gala This July
Former Major League All-Star and Seattle Mariners third baseman Jeff Cirillo as well as Northwest native and rising country music star Aaron Crawford have been announced as part of the 2017 West Coast League's All-Star game festivities to take place at Yakima County Stadium at State Fair Park this July.
Cirillo, a two-time MLB All-Star third baseman who played 14 years in the big leagues, will be the keynote speaker for the All-Star Game luncheon, which will be held in the State Fair Room of the Yakima Valley SunDome, beginning at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 18.
Crawford, who hails from Seattle, has performed in Yakima before and has been a crowd favorite because of his varied style and ease in which his music reflects the Northwest.
Crawford’s concert is part of the All-Star Game Fan Fest on Monday, July 17th at the stadium which will also include a Home Run Derby, that features the top hitters from the 11-team league.
Tickets for the Fan Fest cost $20 and include admission to both the Home Run Derby and the concert. Tickets for the luncheon are $30 and include a buffet lunch. Tickets can be purchased from Hunky Shaw’s Team Shop, 12 S. Second St. in the historic Larson Building in downtown Yakima, or by phone at 509-575-4487.
The Pippins begin their fourth season in Yakima against the Victoria HarbourCats at 7:05 p.m. Friday, June 2nd. Single-game tickets for the season opener and all games are currently available for purchase.
