FRISCO – The always popular and always heavily attended star-studded Dirk Nowitzki’s 2019 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game will be held on June 7 at Dr Pepper Ballpark.
Pre-game festivities start at 7 p.m. and the first pitch is at 7:30 p.m. A fireworks display, sponsored by Baylor Scott & White Sports Performance at The Star, will be shown at the conclusion of the game.
Tickets for the event went on sale Tuesday at TicketReturn.com for $11, $20 and $25, and for $41 for those patrons who wish to be in the Lazy River. Tickets can also be purchased by calling TicketReturn at 866-698-4253, or by visiting the Dr Pepper Ballpark Box Office during office hours.
Proceeds will benefit The Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation.
This is the 18th anniversary of the Heroes baseball game. Meanwhile, Nowitzki, who announced his retirement from the NBA some two weeks ago after spending his entire 21 years with the Dallas Mavericks, is in his eighth year being a partner of this event.
The celebrity players — and amateurs — who plan to participate in this game will be announced at a later date.
