The baseball season may be over, but young baseball fans, and their parents, will have an opportunity to see Major League baseball players in person at Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam.

The Fox Sports MLB All-Star Event takes place at 9 a.m. Dec. 5 at Ward Field. The event will feature meet-and-greet opportunities as well as an autograph session for kids.

Among the players scheduled to appear are Mitch Harris of the St. Louis Cardinals. Harris attended the United States Naval Academy from 2005-2008 and is the first Naval Academy graduate to play in the major leagues since 1921.

Also scheduled to appear is two-time all-star and Hawaii native Shane Victorino. Twice a World Series champion, Victorino is from Wailuku, Maui and has played in the majors for 12 years.

Fox MLB’s award-winning analyst Harold Reynolds will host the event. Before becoming a broadcaster, Reynolds played 10 seasons in the major leagues and is a two-time all star.

Other players, not announced at press time, will also make appearances.

The event is free and is open to all military-affiliated personnel and their sponsored guests. No tickets are needed, but seating is limited and is first come, first in. Patrons are welcome to bring their own beach chairs or blankets. For more information, go to www.greatlifehawaii.com.
