In Park Activity-

Major League Baseball announced today that on July 13, the Disneyland Resort will welcome the MLB All-Star Red Carpet procession into the Disneyland Park.

An approximately 6,000-square-yard red carpet stretching three-quarters of a mile from the corner of South Harbor Boulevard at Convention Way to Disney Way, where the public portion concludes, will feature professional baseball players from the 81st annual MLB All-Star Game, their families and members of the coaching staffs. The parade then will continue through Disneyland to Main Street U.S.A. for guests in the park.

The event is scheduled to begin at 2:30 p.m. ET/11:30 a.m. PT and is expected to feature all of the MLB All-Stars and the All-Star managers, all riding in Chevrolet Silverados. It has become the traditional way that players get to the ballpark for the Midsummer Classic, ever since the first such parade outside Comerica Park in Detroit in 2005. MLB Network will telecast the event nationally at 4 p.m. ET and air an abbreviated version at 7:30 p.m. ET.

“The All-Star Game Red Carpet Show presented by Chevy gives fans the opportunity to see their favorite MLB stars in a unique way and brings fans closer to the game,” said Tim Brosnan, executive vice president, business, for MLB. “In addition to the people of Anaheim, we are thrilled to bring the event into the Disneyland Resort to share this celebration of Major League Baseball with their guests from across America and around the world.”

“Disneyland Resort is thrilled to participate in the MLB All-Star Game festivities, and help shine the spotlight on the entire Anaheim Resort Area,” said George Kalogridis, president of Disneyland Resort. “With the Midsummer Classic here in our own backyard, I can’t imagine a more perfect All-Star Game parade route than one that concludes on Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland park and allows our guests to join in the celebration.”

The 81st Major League Baseball All-Star Game will be televised nationally by FOX Sports, in Canada by Rogers Sportsnet and Sportsnet HD and Le Reseau de Sport, and around the world by Major League Baseball International, with pregame ceremonies beginning at 8 p.m. ET. ESPN Radio will provide exclusive national radio coverage. MLB Network, MLB.com and Sirius XM also will provide comprehensive All-Star Game coverage.

Merchandise

Major League Baseball Properties and Disney Consumer Products today unveiled 36 different designs of MLB-themed Mickey Mouse collectible statuettes and related apparel and merchandise in celebration of the 2010 MLB All-Star Week festivities taking place July 9–13 in Anaheim, Calif. as part of a new collaboration between the organizations. The statuettes are replicas of seven and a half foot tall, life-size statues that will be placed at key Southern California landmarks leading up to the All-Star Game on July 13.

This special line of commemorative collectibles, commissioned in conjunction with MLB and Disney Consumer Products’ licensee Forever Collectibles, will be uniquely decorated with bold graphics featuring logos of each of the 30 MLB Clubs as well as an American League and a National League design. In addition, four statuettes will feature various All-Star Game themes. All are available in a 7.5-inch size through MLB.com beginning today and later this month through DisneyStore.com and additional retailers including MLB stadium shops, Walgreens and Dick’s Sporting Goods.

The 36 life-size statues are also decorated using the same logos and designs as the statuettes. With a height of 7.5 feet and weighing 989 pounds, these MLB-themed statues will begin to appear at landmarks throughout Southern California closer to the 2010 All-Star Game. Exact locations will be made public at a later date.

“With the All-Star Game returning to Anaheim, now is the perfect time for these two iconic American brands to team up and celebrate the premiere sporting event of the summer,” said Bob DuPuy, President & Chief Operating Officer, Major League Baseball. “These Mickey Mouse statuettes will allow fans of all 30 Clubs to share in the excitement of All-Star Summer even if they can’t make it to Anaheim for the festivities.”

“Baseball and Mickey Mouse really connect families and with the All-Star Game being in our backyard this year, it made perfect sense to combine the magic of Disney with America’s favorite pastime,” said Stephen Teglas, vice president and general manager of Fashion & Home North America at Disney Consumer Products. “We look forward to delighting fans of both brands with our unique products and collectibles.”

In addition to the statuettes, starting next month, fans can obtain a wide variety of merchandise and apparel featuring Major League Baseball and beloved Disney characters, including caps, t-shirts, sweatshirts, drink ware, pins, throws and beach towels.

Today, following the public portion of the All-Star parade, we welcomed the 2010 All-Star teams down Main Street, U.S.A., right before the start of the big game. It was a great afternoon and I saw more than a few baseball fans along our parade route enjoying themselves.

Leading off the parade were the West Anaheim Little League All Stars. I really enjoyed watching these kids as each baseball star made their way past them in Town Square and I think the players liked seeing them too.West Anaheim Little League All Stars
One lifelong baseball fan who came to Disneyland park Tuesday was none other than Larry King, who brought his sons Cannon, 10, left, and Chance, 11, to see all the players up close. Larry is as much a fan of the Disneyland Resort as he is of baseball!
