I am proud to be representing Phoenix this week as an MLB All-Star volunteer. Thousands will rush in starting today, July 8, 2011 to take in the festivities surrounding America’s favorite pastime. PCA Members Arizona Diamondbacks and Derrick Hall have been prepping for a year to make this week go smoothly. In the volunteer orientation last Wednesday, the MLB and the Arizona Diamondbacks encouraged everyone to take a moment to truly enjoy this week. An event of this historic stature does not come to your city often and so take time to enjoy any aspect that you can.
Some notable events includes the All-Star FanFest, an interactive baseball theme park, located at the Phoenix Convention Center. On Tuesday, before the game, players will be parading down Jefferson Street (between 1st and 4th) in the Red Carpet Show sponsored by Chevrolet. Come out and see Luis Gonzalez, Alex Rodriguez and other baseball legends enter Chase Field in this MLB All-Star week tradition. All the week’s events can be found on the Downtown Phoenix Journal website.
To promote the All-Star Game, the Arizona Diamondbacks created a lip dub that is both fun and clever!
Congratulations Arizona Diamondbacks for the week will surely raise the bar on hosting this world-class event.
