El Paso, TX, June 26, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The El Paso Chihuahuas announced today that Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) has been named the title partner of the 2019 Triple-A All-Star Game. The 2019 RMHC Triple-A All-Star Game & Jarritos Triple-A Home Run Derby will take place July 8-10 at Southwest University Park.
Gates for the 2019 RMHC Triple-A All-Star Game will open at 5:30 p.m. The game is slated to air on the MLB Network and Chihuahuas All-Star broadcaster Tim Hagerty will call the game on 600 ESPN.
“It’s an honor to host Triple-A Baseball’s Home Run Derby and All-Star Game, Minor League Baseball’s premier and most exclusive events, here in El Paso at Southwest University Park,” said MountainStar Sports Group President Alan Ledford, “and we are thrilled to have national organizations like Ronald McDonald House Charities and Jarritos as our title partners.”
“RMHC is excited to be a part of the 2019 Triple-A All Star Game,” said Sheila Musolino, president and CEO, of RMHC. “We look forward to the opportunity to engage Minor League Baseball fans with our mission of keeping families with ill or injured children near the medical care they need, when they need it most.”
RMHC helps families stay together, and close to the medical care their child needs at leading hospitals worldwide. RMHC programs not only provide access to quality health care, they enable family-centered care ensuring families are fully supported and actively involved in their children’s care. RMHC gives families the ability to spend more time with their ill or injured children, to interact with their doctors, and to make important decisions about their care.

“This is truly a great set of partners for both of the events,” said MountainStar Sports Group Senior Vice President and General Manager Brad Taylor. “This game and its messaging will highlight the efforts and the impact that RMHC provides. Jarritos and their overall line of drinks will surely add some flavor to the Home Run Derby.”
Started in 1988, the 32nd edition of the game will showcase the best players of Triple-A Baseball's Pacific Coast (PCL) and International Leagues. Since 1998, the International League has bested the PCL with a 12-9 record with the PCL the winners in 2017 & 2018. All-Star Game alumni include current San Diego Padres Wil Myers and Ian Kinsler, as well as Derek Jeter, Chase Utley and Joc Pederson, to name a few.
Individual tickets and bundled packages for both events are available and on sale now, but they are going fast. Group leaders are able to purchase a group to the All-Star Game and/or the Home Run Derby. Supplies are limited so fans are encouraged to buy now so as not to miss out on these once-in-a-lifetime events.
