We are excited to offer tickets to the 2012 Baseballtown All-Star Classic,
said R-Phils GM Scott Hunsicker. We want to give our loyal season ticket holders and
mini-plan holders the first opportunity at all of the Baseballtown All Star Classic
tickets including tickets to all four events. In fact, we are going to allow them
to purchase as many tickets as they would like to all of the Baseballtown All Star Classic
events before we put any tickets on sale to anyone else. Its a reward to our season
ticket holders and mini-plan holders as they can get as many of the very best seats
as they want for all the events.
All 2011 season ticket holders and mini-plan holders can purchase tickets to the 2012
Baseballtown All-Star Classic Game and events, by renewing their season tickets or
mini-plans for the 2012 season at FirstEnergy Stadium.
The earlier a fan renews, the better the seats they will get for all of the
Baseballtown All-Star Classic events, said R-Phils Director of Ticket Operations
Mike Becker. This is the first time since 1974 that Reading has played host to this
great event, and this will be an event R-Phils fans will not want to miss. Im happy
that we are able to offer this outstanding two-day event to our devoted fans.
By renewing season tickets and mini-plans, fans will have the first opportunity to
purchase as many 2012 Baseballtown All-Star Classic tickets as they want, before they go
on-sale to the general public. Plus, by renewing season tickets this season, fans can lock
in 2011 pricing on 2012 season tickets.
Also, as a special thanks for renewing season tickets or a mini-plans, the R-Phils will
also hand out a limited amount of vouchers for a limited edition 2012 Baseballtown
All-Star Classic pint glass for each season ticket or mini-plan purchased.

online, or in=person at the R-Phils Ticket Office.
