MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL ALL-STARS TO PARADE THROUGH STREETS OF MIAMI
The 2017 MLB All-Star teams will make their way through the streets of Miami in red, white, and blue Chevrolet Silverado and Colorado pickups on Tuesday, July 11th as part of the the 13th annual MLB All-Star Red Carpet Show presented by Chevrolet. The event, which is free for fans to attend, will begin at 12:30 p.m. ET. The parade starts on Biscayne Boulevard just north of Chopin Plaza and travels north along Biscayne Boulevard ending near NE 8th Street. The event will air later in the day on MLB Network and MLB.com at 3pm ET.
Serving as Grand Marshals, Marlins legends Jeff Conine and Tony Pérez, will lead the parade in a Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. The NL and AL All-Star Team Managers, Joe Maddon and Terry Francona, will lead their teams through the streets in Chevrolet Camaro SS Redline Convertibles. The players will be traveling on a 100% polypropylene carpet that will be recycled after its use.
As part of the parade celebration, spectators can catch a glimpse of the Commissioner’s Trophy, which is presented to the World Series Champion each year. Merchandise giveaways will take place while MLB mascots join the parade route interacting with fans along the way. More than 70 players, boys and girls ages 6-14, from seven Miami area Chevy Youth Baseball supported teams will also take part in the parade.
