Banner Island Ballpark is hosting a vintage baseball game featuring former MLB legends for the Fourth of July!
Teaming up with the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association and the Oakland Athletics, we are going to be raising money to help children who can’t afford to play baseball. It’s very sad that a growing number of our youth haven’t been able to experience our national pastime. We’re going to fix that!
In a special 4th of July holiday celebration, legendary A’s alumni and Hall of Famers will hit the diamond at Banner Island Ballpark...but it won’t be a regular game. We will be turning the clock back to 1886: all the rules, traditions, and equipment of the game as it was first played over a century ago. Following the game will be live band performances, as well as traditional 4th of July fireworks presented by the Stockton Ports in cooperation with the University Plaza Waterfront Hotel and the Stockton Convention and Visitor’s Bureau.
In addition to the vintage baseball game, at 2 p.m. there will a FREE Youth Baseball Clinic hosted by the Major League Baseball Alumni Association, instructed by former MLB players and Hall-of-Fame members. The clinic will be an opportunity for children to learn valuable sports and life tips from players that are the face of baseball history. Even better, this event is FREE with your paid ticket to watch the baseball game and fireworks show!
Practice for former MLB players and Hall-of-Famers begins at 4 p.m. During this, live interviews with MLB alumni will be broadcast over the PA.
