Baseball enthusiasts will have an opportunity to take to the streets of Minneapolis and St. Paul to compete in a race of the feet and mind for a chance to win prizes and tickets to MLB All-Star Week events during the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt. The T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt will begin at approximately 11:00 a.m. CT on Wednesday, May 21st when a series of clues and passwords will be released one-by-one through the MLB All-Star Game Twitter account (@AllStarGame) and the Twins Twitter account (@Twins). Each clue will lead fans to one of six locations throughout the Twin Cities.
The first eligible fan to show up to each location and provide MLB All-Star ambassadors wearing an MLB All-Star Game T-shirt with the correct password - which will be released in advance through the MLB All-Star Game and Twins Twitter accounts - will win a prize package including four tickets for each of the five days of T-Mobile All-Star FanFest, plus four T-Mobile JUMP! Lane Passes for each day, four T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Eat and Play Combo packs for each day, entitling winners to a hot dog and soft drink at the Minneapolis Convention Center and one Joe Mauer autographed baseball. Two of the locations will feature prize packages with all of the above, plus a T-Mobile device with a year of service. At each location, second, third, fourth and fifth runner-ups will receive a pair of T-Mobile All-Star FanFest tickets.
Fans that are unable to physically participate in the T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt will also be eligible to win a prize package, including a T-Mobile device with a year of service, by retweeting a message shared by @AllStarGame later in the day. The T-Mobile All-Star FanFest Ticket Hunt is open to legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older. Fans can visit AllStarGame.com\FanFest for more details on eligibility and prizes.
T-Mobile All-Star FanFest at the Minneapolis Convention Center, which opens on Friday, July 11th and runs through Tuesday, July 15th, will be the world's largest interactive baseball theme park with over 400,000 square feet of baseball-related attractions for fans of all ages. Visitors can practice their baseball skills during clinics hosted by MLB legends and current players; swing like their favorite Major Leaguers in the batting cages; view a collection of MLB trophies and take a photo with the Commissioner's Trophy, presented to the World Series Champions; explore exhibits from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum; take photos with and get autographs from former Twins players, MLB Legends and Hall of Famers and more. T-Mobile returns as title sponsor of T-Mobile All-Star FanFest for a second straight year.
All T-Mobile All-Star FanFest attractions are included with the price of admission, and the only additional costs are for concessions and memorabilia. Tickets are $35 for adults and $30 for children ages 12 and under (children two and under are admitted free), senior citizens and military personnel. T-Mobile All-Star FanFest tickets are sold on a timed-entry basis, so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets early to obtain preferred entry times.
