CLEVELAND — One of baseball's biggest stages is coming to the corner of Carnegie and Ontario this summer.
Cleveland will be packed this July as fans of all teams and cities congregate downtown for the MLB All-Star Game, Home Run Derby, Celebrity Softball Game and more.
Tickets will be a tough find and prices will be high, but there's another way you can get in on the action while giving back to the community.
MLB is looking for about 2,200 volunteers to help out at a number of All-Star Week events, from hospitality to logistics and transportation. Though volunteers aren't used for ballpark events, you can still show your Cleveland hospitality at other places. Volunteers will be needed at the All-Star Gala, the pre-game ceremony rehearsals and the Play Ball Park, which will be set up inside the Cleveland Convention Center.
Though volunteers aren't paid, they'll receive some pretty cool swag in return for their time, including:
- MLB All-Star shirt
- MLB All-Star volunteer hat
- Unlimited access to Play Ball Park
- MLB All-Star volunteer cinch bag
- MLB All-Star game water bottle
- Commemorative All-Star baseball
- Two tickets to a Cleveland Indians game
- Fill out the online registration form
- Complete a volunteer information session
- Pass the MLB background check
- Select volunteer event opportunities
- Attend a volunteer training session
Volunteers must be at least 18 years old. Click here to learn more.
