This was truly a great event for our league, and the front office and ballpark staff in York did a phenomenal job,” said Atlantic League President Rick White. “Our annual All-Star Game is both a display of the talent of our league and a celebration of our baseball community, and York really put together an outstanding event that more than achieved both of those goals.”
“It is very gratifying to see our work valued like this, and we appreciate the league’s recognition,” said Revolution President Eric Menzer. “But we can’t take all the credit. Our theme this year was ‘Made in York,’ and this really was an event that the greater York community helped create. We are very grateful to our terrific sponsors and supporters for helping put on this memorable event and to our fans and fans throughout the league for joining the celebration.”
