2011 NYPL All-Star Game
The 2011 New York-Penn League All-Star Game is coming to LeLacheur Park and is exclusively sponsored by LOWELL GENERAL HOSPITAL. The festivities will kick off Tuesday, August 16 with the All-Star Brunch featuring Rich Gedman, Tim Purpura, Rico Petrocelli, Bill Monbouquette, Glenn DiSarcina and author Marty Dobrow at the Radisson of Chelmsford, beginning at 10:30. Tickets for this event can be ordered only by e-mailing Tim Bawmann (click here to order). Tickets are $35 and are extremely limited for the public.

There will be a special auction for New York-Penn League All-Star jerseys, straight off the backs off the All-Stars (benefiting LGH Charities), a Mystery Ball raffle (with autographed, sweet spot NYPL and MLB balls signed by everyone from Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg to Cal Ripken Jr., Jim Rice, Johnny Pesky, Ryan Kalish and so many more) as well as much, much more, concluding with post-game Fireworks.
