The Giants Pablo Sandoval and All-Star Russ Ortiz will lead private clinics for Make-A-Wish Arizona wish kids and families. The FanFest will benefit future Arizona wishes by donating $1 from every ticket sold to Make-A-Wish Arizona. Kansas City Royals stars, Billy Butler and Salvador Perez, San Francisco Giants hurler, Ryan Vogelsong, Olympic Medalist and Colorado Rockies pitcher Brett Anderson, and two-time All-Star Scott Kazmir, are among the many other stars scheduled to attend throughout the weekend.
Over 60,000 square feet of the Convention Center will morph into a field of dreams for enthusiasts of all ages. Fans will experience what it’s like to ‘hit it out of the park’ at the Home Run Derby field before they head over to learn how to throw a world class fastball just like the pros at the Speed Pitch station. Attendees will also get an up close and personal experience with historic memorabilia, locker room displays and will be able to browse premier baseball vendors showing the latest training and equipment tools.
