COOPERSTOWN, NY – As baseball prepares for its annual mid-summer celebration, the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum celebrates the return of one of Cooperstown’s favorite family events: The All-Star Gala.

Baseball’s biggest stars will grace the Museum’s big screen on Tuesday, July 10 as the 83rd All-Star Game is shown live in the Grandstand Theater. Cooperstown-area visitors and Central New Yorkers can watch the 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star Game live from Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., in style in ballpark seating as they enjoy Fox’s live television coverage of the annual Mid-Summer Classic.

The Hall of Fame All-Star Gala provides an evening of family entertainment with prizes, snacks and more for baseball fans of every age. Doors to the Grandstand Theater open at 7:30 p.m., with game coverage beginning at 8 p.m.

Fans will be treated to hot dogs and ballpark-style snacks, along with a limited edition commemorative All-Star Gala button for all guests in attendance. Scorecards will be distributed to fans, and official All-Star Game programs will be available for purchase. During the game’s inning breaks, fans will be able to compete in a variety of games and trivia contests for an opportunity to win door prizes. The All-Star Gala is made possible by the generous support of Price Chopper supermarkets.

Tickets to the All-Star Gala are now available to the general public and cost $10 for adults and $5 for children. Tickets can be reserved by calling the Museum’s Membership Department at 607-547-0397 or by visiting the Membership and Museum Services Desk at the Museum in Cooperstown.
