In less than two weeks, baseball fans will head to Kansas City, Missouri’s Kauffman Stadium for the MLB All-Star Game and events. As a Phillies fan, there is one thing that I’m almost certain of…Cliff Lee will not be selected as an All-Star this year. The rosters will be announced tomorrow (Sunday, July 1st) which will allow Aramark, the retail provider for the game, to start customizing player T-shirts that will be available for sale at the stadium. The Kansas City Business Journal reports that Aramark expects the customized T-shirts to be the hottest selling item during the event.

As of yesterday, Aramark had not yet finalized the printing arrangements and still needs to award the printing services to a vendor. Regardless, Aramark’s first order should be available for pick up on Monday. As an alternative to customized hats, machines will also be available onsite that are capable of adding All-Star Game patches to game hats people wear into the stadium. This is the first year this is being offered as part of the fan experience.

In addition to the branded merchandise, Aramark will also be serving up some special All-Star menu items. According to the Journal, “Erin Wishon, Aramark’s executive chef for Kauffman Stadium, said menu development for the All-Star Game started in January. ‘We wanted to showcase local flavors that people expect when they come to Kansas City,’ Wishon said.

The event sounds like one to look forward to. Enjoy what’s to come on July 10th even if you are just tuning in like me. Play Ball!
