It’s official: the Reno Aces (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) will host the 2013 Triple-A All-Star Game at Aces Ballpark.
The special announcement was made by Reno Aces Managing Partner Stuart Katzoff, Pacific Coast League President Branch Rickey, International League President Randy Mobley, Reno Mayor Bob Cashell and Reno Sparks Convention and Visitors Authority President & CEO Chris Baum.
“We are all very proud and excited to bring an event of this magnitude to Northern Nevada,” Katzoff said. “The Triple-A All-Star Game gives our tremendous fan base the opportunity to see some of the game’s premier up-and-coming players, while showcasing our community to a national audience.”
The annual Triple-A Home Run Derby is set for Monday, July 8, 2013 and the nationally-televised 26th annual Triple-A All-Star Game will take place on Wednesday, July 10, 2013. In addition to those two landmark events, the all-star celebration will include several days of unique entertainment for fans of all ages that will showcase the Northern Nevada region, including a fan fest that will feature interactive games, displays, autograph signings and historical memorabilia.
“I am looking forward to the Aces hosting the 2013 All-Star Game, in particular, for giving the broader cross-section of Triple-A baseball owners and executives a closer view of the wonderful way the franchise has come of age in this city, this community, and enjoying the magnificent achievement of the stadium and the Freight House District integration,” Rickey said. “This is a great opportunity for Reno to show off across baseball circles and the broader exposure that will be gained through the press and television. It will be a great time for Triple-A Baseball.”
The 2012 Triple-A All-Star Game will be hosted by the Buffalo Bisons.
