Dirk Nowitzki Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game TicketsAlthough retired from the NBA, Dirk Nowitzki hasn't stopped spending time in Dallas and giving back to his community. The former NBA star retired from the Dallas Mavericks after spending his entire career with that team, and he still hosts an annual celebrity baseball game. All proceeds from this game are donated to Nowitzki's own foundation and the Dallas-based Heroes Foundation. Both charities focus on young athletes in different sports in Dallas and the surrounding area. The annual celebrity baseball game includes Dallas football, baseball and basketball standouts from local professional teams. Some participants are retired like Nowitzki, and others are still actively playing for their Dallas teams. The nine-person teams and celebrity team managers also include local celebrities such as DJs and TV personalities, Dallas-native actors and even the Mavericks' owner, Mark Cuban.

Where does the Dirk Nowitzki Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game take place?Since its inception in 2001, the celebrity baseball game has taken place at Dr Pepper Ballpark in Frisco. Nowitzki has been associated with the annual game since 2011. Dr Pepper Ballpark is a AA minor league baseball park and home to the Frisco Rough Riders. The maximum capacity of the stadium is 10,316.
What's the atmosphere like at the celebrity baseball game?The majority of the players participating in the Dirk Nowitzki Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game are highly trained and physically fit professional athletes from various sports franchises in the Dallas Metroplex. With this level of talent on the baseball diamond, attendees can expect to see an aggressive game of baseball. All the players are naturally competitive, which means you can expect to witness a ton of trash talking, base stealing and out-of-the-park home runs. Since most of the athletes aren't actually baseball players, this celebrity game may not be the best baseball you've ever seen, but it's entertaining to watch established athletes struggle in a sport that is not in their wheelhouse.
How much are Dirk Nowitzki Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game tickets?Ticket prices vary based on where you wish to be seated and whether you wait to buy your tickets until right before the game. It's best to check in at StubHub for the latest ticket prices to the game and to get the best seats early.
What teams play during this celebrity athlete baseball game?Traditionally, the teams playing against each other during the celebrity baseball game are labeled as the White Sox and the Blue Sox. The teams aren't affiliated with the MLB White Sox. Instead, the teams are based solely on uniform color. Each of the teams includes a minimum of nine players. In past games, each team has had one to six celebrity coaches, managers and honorary bench warmers.
What is there to do before and after the main event?The Dirk Nowitzki Heroes Celebrity Baseball Game is an all-day, family-friendly event. Festivities start early in the day and include an amateur softball game at 5 p.m. The softball game benefits local Special Olympic teams in the Dallas area and includes some guests from the organization as well. The main event begins immediately after the conclusion of the softball game. After the main event, it's a good idea to stick around and check out the awesome fireworks display. The fireworks last about 10 minutes and can be seen from anywhere in the park, including the nearby parking lots.
