“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.”
“RMHC is excited to be a part of the 2019 Triple-A All Star Game,” said Sheila Musolino, president and CEO, of RMHC. “We look forward to the opportunity to engage Minor League Baseball fans with our mission of keeping families with ill or injured children near the medical care they need, when they need it most.”
RMHC helps families stay together, and close to the medical care their child needs at leading hospitals worldwide. RMHC programs not only provide access to quality health care, they enable family-centered care ensuring families are fully supported and actively involved in their children’s care.
