T-Mobile All-Star FanFest at the Minneapolis Convention Center, which opens on Friday, July 11th and runs through Tuesday, July 15th, will be the epicenter of MLB All-Star Week with over 400,000 square feet of baseball-related attractions for fans of all ages. Visitors can practice their baseball skills during clinics hosted by MLB legends and current players; swing like their favorite Major Leaguers in the batting cages; view a collection of MLB trophies and take a photo with the Commissioner's Trophy, presented to the World Series Champion; explore exhibits from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum; take photos with and get autographs from former Twins players, MLB Legends and Hall of Famers and more. T-Mobile returns as title sponsor of All-Star FanFest for a second straight year after a very successful event in 2013 in New York that saw the second-largest attendance in the history of the event.
All T-Mobile All-Star FanFest attractions are included with the price of admission, and the only additional costs are for concessions and memorabilia. Tickets are $35 for adults and $30 for children ages 12 and under (children two and under are admitted free), senior citizens and military personnel. FanFest tickets are sold on a timed-entry basis, so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early to get preferred entry times.
