For the first time in Dell Diamond's 20-year history, the venue will host the Triple-A All-Star Game in July 2021.
“We could not be more excited to bring the Triple-A All-Star Game to Dell Diamond in 2021,” Express President Chris Almendarez said in a July 25 news release. “This is one of the biggest baseball-related events to take place in Round Rock’s storied history and we’re anxious to get to show off our great city and ballpark to our friends across Minor League Baseball.”
The Triple-A All-Star Game brings together top players from the Pacific Coast League in a nine-inning game against a team comprising star players in the International League.
“As the Sports Capital of Texas, we are honored and excited to partner with the Express to host fans and players of the best teams in Triple-A Baseball,” Round Rock Mayor Craig Morgan said in the release. “With the opening of Kalahari Resorts and Conventions on the horizon, Round Rock looks forward to hosting an All-Star experience to remember. Go Round Rock!”
Round Rock will host the the 34th annual all-star game. In addition to the baseball game, activities include a Triple-A Home Run Derby and an All-Star luncheon.
“The Round Rock Express have been one of the elite franchises in all of Minor League Baseball for many years, so it is only fitting that they were selected to host the 2021 Triple-A All-Star Game," Minor League Baseball President Pat O’Conner said in the release. "I know they will host a wonderful and entertaining event.”
Round Rock Express season ticket holders will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets to the 2021 Triple-A All-Star Game, according to the release. Additional ticket information and a schedule of events will be announced at a later date.
