CURVE, Pa. - Ticket packages for the 2014 Eastern League All-Star Stop in Curve, Pa., which is July 15 and 16, 2014 at Peoples Natural Gas Field, will go on sale to the general public beginning Saturday, December 7 in-person only during the Curve's Holiday Bazaar. The Bazaar will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is held at PNG Field. Phone and online sales of E.L. All-Star Stop ticket packages will begin Monday, December 9 at 9 a.m.
The two-day All-Star Stop will begin with a pair of events on Tuesday, July 15 in the Curve, Pa. Heroes Game and the All-Star Blast-Off Hitting Challenge. The Heroes Game will start the day on Tuesday and will have the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) playing in a softball game against a group of Curve, Pa. celebrities that will be announced at a later date. The WWAST is comprised of young, competitive, athletic veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs post-9/11 while serving their country in the military/war. This group has traveled around the country playing in exhibition and celebrity softball games to raise awareness of the sacrifices and resilience of our military and highlight their ability to rise above any challenge.
Capping off the events on Tuesday will be the All-Star Blast Off, which will be a hitting challenge mixed with a Home Run Derby that involves the All-Stars from both the Eastern and Western Division squads.
Wednesday the 16th will bring the Curve, Pa. All-Star Experience where fans will have the opportunity to attend an autograph and photo session with the Eastern League All-Stars. After the autograph and photo session, fans will then be able to watch batting practice before the All-Star Clash itself will cap the two days of events at PNG Field.
Fans can purchase individual tickets for both days of events or can purchase a money-saving package that includes both days of the All-Star Stop. The pricing for individual tickets and packages is as follows:
