July marks the return of what Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred calls “a five-day celebration of the greatest game in the world,” and Cleveland is proud to be the host of the magic for the first time since 1997.
Sports Travel and Tours is equally as proud to offer tickets to the action that is the 2019 All-Star Game on July 9, visiting Indians territory after a four-year streak of All-Star Games in National League cities. Momentous occasions call for momentous travel packages, and that’s exactly what Sports Travel and Tours has in mind with its Baseball All Star Game – Four Day Package.
Guests arrive on Sunday, July 7 and check into the Drury Plaza Hotel Cleveland Downtown, a full-service hotel within walking distance of Progressive Field and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s seven floors of ever-changing exhibits. Completely renovated, the hotel offers an indoor pool and whirlpool, a 24-hour fitness center, free soda and popcorn, free breakfasts, and a daily 5:30 kick-back, featuring a rotating menu of hot food and cold beverages.
When Monday rolls around, so does the most-hyped baseball event in the world: the All-Star FanFest. Travelers get a one-day admission to the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, also within walking distance of the hotel, and they have the chance to meet MLB legends and get free autographs and give-aways.
Next, it’s off to Progressive Field for the All-Star Workout and Home Run Derby, where Sports Travel and Tours fans can settle into upper level outfield seating. Monday’s festivities serve as a taste of those to come on Tuesday, when fans return to the Indians’ home base for the official All-Star Game.
Cleveland is well-known as the host city for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Sports Travel and Tours wants to make sure fans can check the destination off their bucket lists and has included admission to the museum in its All-Star Game travel package. Check out its vast collection of rock and roll news, artist interviews, and performance notes.
With all the stops on Sports Travel and Tours’ itinerary within walking distance of the hotel, getting around is a breeze. Still, should guests have any questions on what Cleveland has to offer or what’s in store for them, 24-hour trip assistance is just one phone call away.
Travelers depart from Cleveland on Wednesday, July 10, but if four days of baseball—and Cleveland—aren’t enough, Sports Travel and Tours offers an optional add-on that gives you an extra night’s stay at the Drury Plaza Hotel Cleveland Downtown on Saturday.
Travelers who opt for that longer stay get tickets to both the All-Star Futures Game—an exhibition game at which a team of Minor League Baseball prospects from the United States competes against a team of prospects from other countries—and the Legends & Celebrity Softball Game on Sunday.
As its name implies, the Legends & Celebrity game welcomes actors and actresses, musicians and other stars to the playing field, including some who have sports backgrounds of their own. Last year’s game at Miami’s Marlins Park, for example, featured actress Dascha Polanco of “Orange is the New Black” and actor Michael Cudlitz of “The Walking Dead.”
