(Rockland County, NY) – The Rockland Boulders announced today that legendary New York Yankees broadcaster John Sterling will be the featured guest speaker for the All-Star Game Luncheon on Tuesday, July 9, at the New York Country Club in Spring Valley. The event will run from 11:30 am - 1:00 pm to kick off the All-Star Celebration, with the Home Run Derby to follow later that night. The following evening, July 10, the Boulders will serve as hosts for the first-ever All-Star Game between the Can-Am and Frontier Leagues at Palisades Credit Union Park.
Sterling, a member of the New York Sportscasters’ Hall of Fame, is best known for his three decades as the radio voice of the Yankees. He has also won two Emmy Awards for his work as host of YES Network’s Yankeeography series. His ties to New York sports date back to the early 1970s, when he served as play-by-play announcer for both the Nets and the Islanders.
Stars from both leagues will also be in attendance as the luncheon marks the official start of the All-Star festivities. The Home Run Derby, featuring players from both leagues, will take place at 7:30 pm Tuesday. That leads up to Wednesday’s showcase, with some of the best minor league talent in the country taking the field for this historic match-up.
Admission for the luncheon is $60 per ticket ($50 for Season Ticket Members) and a table of 10 is $500, with proceeds going to the non-profit Boulders Community Fund. Tickets for the Luncheon, Home Run Derby, and All-Star Game are on sale now and can be purchased at the Palisades Credit Union box office or online at www.rocklandboulders.com/allstarsummer2019.
