Should be quite the event: the Frisco RoughRiders are set to host the 2017 Texas League All-Star Game at Dr Pepper Ballpark on Tuesday, June 27.
The 2017 Texas League All-Star Game will mark the third time Frisco has played host to the contest at Dr Pepper Ballpark. The RoughRiders also hosted the 2005 and 2009 Texas League All-Star Games, welcoming sellout crowds of more than 10,000 fans for both games.
“With all of the stunning fan experience upgrades that we’ve made to Dr Pepper Ballpark over the past two seasons, including the nationally-acclaimed Choctaw Lazy River, our eye-popping HD video board, the opening of the Bull Moose Saloon Sports Bar, and so many more exciting ballpark and game day experience enhancements, next year’s Texas League All-Star Game offers us a wonderful opportunity to showcase our revitalized brand along with the dynamic growth and vibrancy of the City of Frisco,” said RoughRiders’ General Partner and CEO Chuck Greenberg.
All-Star festivities will take place starting Monday, June 26 and continue during the day on Tuesday, June 27, prior to that night’s All-Star Game. Events will take place at Dr Pepper Ballpark and throughout both Frisco and the DFW Metroplex.
“On behalf of the City of Frisco, I am delighted that the Texas League All-Star Game is coming to Dr Pepper Ballpark in 2017,” said Frisco Mayor Maher Maso. “We look forward to welcoming the fans, players, coaches, and baseball industry executives and scouts from across the region to our great city for this momentous event.”
There are two ways to secure seats to the 2017 Texas League All-Star Game at Dr Pepper Ballpark: via a full 2017 Frisco RoughRiders Season Ticket plan or an All-Star Flex Plan, which includes 10 ticket vouchers for the 2016 season, 10 ticket vouchers for the 2017 season, and the ability to secure up to four seats for the 2017 All-Star Game.
The 2017 Texas League All-Star Game will pit teams from the league’s North and South divisions, made up of the best prospects on each team. The South Division will be represented by Frisco (Rangers), Corpus Christi (Houston Astros), Midland (Oakland Athletics) and San Antonio (San Diego Padres). Meanwhile, the North will feature the Arkansas Travelers (Los Angeles Angels), Northwest Arkansas Naturals (Kansas City Royals), Springfield Cardinals (St. Louis Cardinals), and Tulsa Drillers (Los Angeles Dodgers).
