Flying Squirrels Announce Eastern League All-Star Week for July

Posted By on Tue, Oct 23, 2018 at 3:50 PM

The Basics:

There was a press conference at the Diamond today to announce the early plans for the Eastern League All-Star Week that the Richmond Flying Squirrels will be hosting in July 2019.

Genworth is partnering with the Squirrels to host all-star week and they will be supporting local community partners including Richmond Flying Squirrels Charities, United Way, and/or FeedMore, according to a release.

At the press conference, a jokey affair filled with theme music and mascots, the organizers announced that they are spreading the all-star game festivities into a full week, including:

Sunday, July 7: Mayor Levar Stoney’s all-star week kickoff at Brown’s Island (including bands to be announced)

Monday, July 8: An all-star country music jam at Virginia Credit Union Live at Richmond Raceway

Tuesday, July 9: A celebrity homerun derby and Funnville Fan fest

Wednesday, July 10: The all-star game itself (tickets not yet announced).

“There’s a four-headed monster basically,” says Ben Rothrock, general manager of the Richmond Flying Squirrels. “Really we wanted to utilize all four days to showcase this region. Tickets will be on sale shortly.”

Rothrock did not have any numbers available for people expected.

“It’s going to be a significant amount of people, we want it to be a fun, family-oriented atmosphere with music, food, beverages, different vendors,” he adds.
