One lucky fan who attends Saturday’s Yakima Valley Pippins game against the Kelowna Falcons will go home with one of the most sought-after baseball event tickets in the game.
A pair of tickets to the 2023 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, which will be held at T-Mobile Park in Seattle next July, will be given to one fan through random selection of all scanned admission tickets for that night.
“With the excitement around the Mariners right now and coming off of the All-Star Game this past week, we’re happy we’re able to do this for one of our fans here in Yakima,” Pippins general manager Jeff Garretson said.
All fans who purchase a single-game ticket for the game online at PippinsTickets.com, in advance by calling 509-575-4487, or at the box office on game day have a chance to win. Season-ticket holders, mini-plan buyers and group tickets for that night also are eligible to win.
The winner will be announced after the seventh inning, Garretson said.
Saturday night also is Pippins Trading Card Night, presented by Ron’s Coin and Collectibles. The first 500 fans receive a free, 30-card pack of Pippins player cards.
“With a great giveaway already scheduled for Saturday, adding in All-Star Game tickets will make the night even more special,” Garretson said. “And we’re playing exciting baseball here in the second half, so it’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Because of the intense heat expected this week, Garretson said gates will open 30 minutes prior to game time at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, with first pitch at 7:05 p.m.
