On August 19, the best and brightest stars in the New York-Penn League will descend upon MCU Park on Coney Island for the 10th Annual New York-Penn League All-Star Game presented by the Tic Toc Stop Foundation and Mercedes Benz of Brooklyn.
Tickets for the game, which drew an All-Star Game record of 9,054 fans the last time it was in Brooklyn, went on sale to the general public on Monday, April 21 at 10 a.m. exclusively at http://www.brooklyncyclones.com. Ticket prices range from $10 - $16, keeping MCU Park as the home of the most affordable family fun in Brooklyn.
Fans who come to the ballpark will be treated to non-stop entertainment from the time the gates open. At 5 p.m., both All-Star teams will be available throughout the ballpark for photos and autographs. Current big league stars like Miguel Cabrera, Andrew McCutchen, Jose Bautista and Robinson Cano have all played in the NYPL, so the guy signing fans’ game programs or baseballs may go on to win the Triple Crown or be named National League MVP.
But that’s not all. At 6 p.m., there will be even more stars taking the field at MCU Park for the Civil Servant / Celebrity All-Star Challenge presented by Municipal Credit Union. The game will feature every-day heroes from the NYPD, FDNY, PAPD, DSNY and more, as well as stars from the entertainment and sports world.
