The advent of social media has been extraordinary in how it lets fans, media, and athletes have direct contact.
With MLB’s All-Star Game in Phoenix fast approaching, we thought the idea of having a party was in order, and social media is the driver.
On Sunday, July 10 at 7pm, just after the All-Star Futures game, we encourage you to attend the “Tweetup at the All-Star Game”. Fans, media, and (hopefully) athletes will gather to mingle, while media and others take questions via Twitter. All anyone on Twitter that wishes to get in on the fun has to do is add the hashtag #ASGTweetup to their tweets.
WHEN: Sunday, July 10 (7pm)
WHERE: Coach and Willies
412 South 3rd Street, Phoenix, AZ 85004
