Tacoma has long waiting to host a premier baseball event and this year, the waiting is over. The Tacoma Rainiers have been selected to host the 2017 Triple-A All-Star Game at Cheney Stadium, the team’s home field located in Central Tacoma.
Leading up to the game, baseball fans from all around flocked to see the best in the Triple-A league face off in an electric Home Run Derby to kick off the All-Star festivities on Monday night. If you weren’t able to join in the fun, Seattle reporter Josh Kerns has you covered with a full recap and exclusive interview with the Tacoma Rainiers’ President, Aaron Artman. The All-Star game is tonight with the first pitch at 6 p.m. Hope to see you all tonight!
