Free, family-friendly entertainment is on the deck of Play Ball Park during the MLB All-Star Game
The Major League Baseball All-Star game arrives in Denver on July 13, but it’s not the only event where fans can experience the excitement.
Play Ball Park, formerly known as MLB FanFest, brings the best of the stadium to the Colorado Convention Center July 9-13. Best of all, it’s free to get in on the action.
This five-day family event occupies over 400,000 square feet at the convention center and features indoor batting cages, pitching tunnels and three baseball fields where players can hone their skills and have fun. The streets around the convention center will also be reimagined as a baseball paradise where fans can swing for the fences as the MLB Home Run Derby activates.
Explore the history of one of America’s favorite pastimes with exhibits hosted by the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum and the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, and see the World Series trophy among other memorabilia from the MLB. And keep your phone charged, as celebrity sightings and autograph signatures will be plentiful. Team mascots are expected to be on hand, and the roster of baseball and softball players, former stars, coaches and featured Olympians will be announced in the coming weeks.
Other attractions include shopping and video game competitions, according to a statement.
