Eli Young Band To Headline All-Star Game Fan Fest In Troy



The Tri-City ValleyCats have announced updated details regarding the New York-Penn League All-Star Game festivities this August. National award-winning country act Eli Young Band headlines a free concert at Riverfront Park in Troy during the All-Star Fan Fest on Monday, August 14.

The ValleyCats and 107.7 WGNA have joined forces to bring to Troy the free show by Eli Young Band, whose hit singles “Crazy Girl” and “Even if it Breaks Your Heart” have been awarded Billboard’s #1 Country Song of the Year and ACM Song of the Year. The band has also garnered numerous Grammy, CMA, and CMT nominations, and Teen Choice Awards. They have performed on NBC’s TODAY, Conan, Late Show with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and Fox & Friends. Eli Young Band’s latest studio album, “Fingerprints,” was released on June 16.

Gates at Joseph L. Bruno Stadium will open at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday for the pre-All-Star Game festivities, which includes an autograph session with both teams presented by UpgradeToComfort.com – Your Local Carrier Dealer Network, followed by the Slidin’ Dirty Home Run Derby competition. First pitch is set for 7:00 p.m.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring the New York-Penn League All-Star Game back to the Capital Region,” said ValleyCats General Manager Matt Callahan. “Our organization is looking forward to providing a top-notch fun-filled experience for our fans, while showcasing the best professional baseball talent across the league.”

“The Joe” last played host to the New York-Penn League All-Star Game in 2008, which drew over 6,000 fans. In 2017, the 14-team league will celebrate its 79th season, making it the oldest continually operated Class A league in Minor League Baseball.

“The New York-Penn League is excited about returning to New York’s Capital Region for our 2017 All-Star Game,” said league President Ben J. Hayes. “When the ValleyCats hosted the game back in 2008, it was a tremendous success. I know their staff will go out of their way to ensure another first-class event.”
