(Des Moines, Iowa) - The Principal® Financial Group® proudly announces the 2013 Principal® Financial Dreams Tour, which marks a decade of support for minor league baseball.
Over the past 10 years, The Principal® has brought more than 400 events to minor league ballparks, attracting nearly two million fans. Past tours have given fans the chance to meet some of baseball's biggest stars, including Steve Garvey, Dave Stewart, Rollie Fingers and Lee Smith, among others.
This year's tour, scheduled to make 20 stops from coast to coast, will visit the Fort Wayne TinCaps on Monday, June 23 with an exciting in-ballpark promotion event. Fans will have the chance to meet legendary player Bobby Richardson, who will be available for autographs and photos throughout the game compliments of TinCaps and The Principal®. One lucky fan and their guest will win prime tickets to the game and other prizes through an online contest and more prizes will be available by following the tour's Facebook and Twitter posts.
The Financial Dreams Tour, which is an evolution of the popular Principal® Financial Group Family Fun Fest, also provides attendees with information to help them plan for a brighter financial future.
"The past 10 years have been a real home run for the fans," said Mary O'Keefe, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, The Principal®. "They get to enjoy America's favorite pastime and learn about reaching their financial dreams."
Four Bases of Financial Security
One way fans can learn about reaching their financial dreams is through the Four Bases of Financial Security, which are featured in a series of interactive videos played during the game. Fans also can take home a special card that explains the four bases in more detail.
• First base: Shield your family from the unexpected with life insurance
• Second base: Protect your ability to earn an income with disability insurance
• Third base: Secure your retirement through savings and investments
• Home plate: Create a Dreamcatcher, find an advisor and create a financial plan
"The TinCaps are excited that legendary major leaguer Bobby Richardson will be visiting Parkview Field on June 24th. Thanks to our partnership with the Principal Financial Dreams Tour, we have the opportunity for our fans to meet one of the greatest second basemen and clutch hitters of the modern era," said TinCaps Team President Mike Nutter in announcing the event. "We're thankful for the chance to bring Bobby to our fans and know this will be a memorable experience for all in the ballpark that day.".
