Batter Up! Baseball Fans Coming to Phoenix for All Star Game
Baseball fans are eagerly awaiting the MLB All Star Game and related events taking place in Phoenix from July 8-12. Phoenix is excited to host this event as Phoenix Sky Harbor International welcomes visitors to the Valley of the Sun.
In fact, walking through Phoenix Sky Harborís terminals, you will notice banner wraps and floor coverings with the All Star Game logo (see photos above). Retailers throughout Phoenix Sky Harbor are also selling All Star Game merchandise. Be sure to check out the shops for shirts and other mementos (see photos above).
In preparation for the upcoming events, here are a few things you should be aware of to make your travel experience a little bit easier:
- All Star Game programs must be placed in your carry-on bags
- Replica bats are prohibited through the security checkpoint. Please place these items into your checked luggage
- Planning on renting a car? Make reservations in advance for the best price and selection as sometimes selection is limited for walk-up customers
- Not planning on renting a car? If you are staying in Downtown Phoenix, you can get from Phoenix Sky Harbor to your hotel via the METRO light rail. Just catch the free black and silver bus from the terminals to the 44th Street and Washington Station and board the METRO light rail there. Find out more information here.
