This year’s all-star event will feature a fun filled day for both players and fans with scouting day activities to kick off the afternoon. Gates will open for fans at 4:00 p.m. as scouts from MLB teams evaluate the talent level of the PGCBL’s top players. The scout drills will be followed by a home-run derby that will crown a champion of the long-ball. Fans entering historic Dunn Field will receive free thunderstixs courtesy of Hilliard and will also have the opportunity to receive player autographs. At the conclusion of the All-Star game fans are encouraged to stick around for a huge postgame firework show.
“We have the most amazing fans in baseball and they have been great in their support of the team and our local ownership group. The attendance numbers from the past two seasons speak volumes about how baseball in Elmira is doing and having the opportunity to host the league’s all-star game gives us another way to show other fans from around the league exactly what we’re doing at Dunn Field.” Stated Pioneers co-owner Robbie Nichols.
