41.21.1. He’s an NBA Champ, MVP and the longest-running NBA player to spend his entire 21-season career with one team. Known as Swish 41, he’s the sixth all-time NBA scorer and North Texas’ most treasured hometown hero. What’s not to love about Dirk Nowitzki?
Toast the beloved basketball legend at Dirk Nowitzki’s 2019 Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game presented by Baylor Scott & White Sports Performance Center at the Star on Friday, June 7, at 7 p.m. at the Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco (7300 RoughRiders Trail). Pre-game begins at 7 p.m. with the first pitch thrown at 7:30 p.m.
For the 18th year (and marking Dirk’s eighth year), two baseball teams – each made up of celebrity and amateur players – will slug it out for seven innings of hilarious (and often mediocre) baseball!
Game goers are encouraged to come out early for family-fun festivities and a Heroes Special Olympics All-Star Softball Game. A 10-minute post-game fireworks finale will round out the evening.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 23 for $11, $20, $25 and $41 (Lazy River) at TicketReturn (866-698-4253 or ticketreturn.com) or at the Dr Pepper Ballpark Box Office during office hours. If the game does not sell out, tickets will be available at the door. Will call will open at 10 a.m. on game day.
Proceeds will benefit The Dirk Nowitzki Foundation and the Heroes Foundation. Baylor Scott & White Sports Performance Center at the Star is the presenting sponsor and sponsor of the fireworks finale.
