Future stars will coming to Boston this summer. The Cape Cod Baseball League announced Thursday that the All-Star Game will take place at Fenway on Wednesday, July 28, at 7:05 p.m.
The Cape Cod League All-Star Game is a prestigious event, and many former Cape Cod Leaguers have gone onto the big leagues, including the Red Sox’ Jason Varitek (Hyannis in 1991, 1993), Kevin Youkilis (Bourne, 2000), Jacoby Ellsbury (Falmouth, 2004) and Mike Lowell (Chatham, 1994). The 2010 game will mark the 46th in the league’s “modern era” and the 23rd using the present East Division vs. West Division format.
“Each summer, the Cape League All-Star Game is our premier showcase event,” said Cape Cod League president Judy Walden Scarafile. “It is eagerly anticipated by everyone connected with the league, especially our players and our many fans.Having it take place at Fenway, America’s Most Beloved Ballpark, is only fitting as we celebrate the 126th year of Cape Cod baseball. Last year's event at Fenway, in spite of inclement weather, was a huge success. We are thrilled to be returning!”
The event will be an exciting, family-friendly night at Fenway, offering an action-packed game. Before the first pitch is thrown, there will be a Home Run Derby, autograph session with the All-Stars and a silent auction featuring various baseball memorabilia.
Discounted concession items will also be offered for those that just want to enjoy the park's atmosphere and the famous Fenway Franks.
All tickets are general admission and priced at $10. They can be purchased online, or by phone at (877) REDSOX-9. The Red Sox' TTY number for hearing-impaired fans is (617) 226-6644.
