“We are so excited. This is such an important partnership between the Somerset Patriots and RWJBarnabas Health,” said Michael Antoniades, President and Chief Executive Officer of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. “It’s been 20 years of a great partnership that we are so proud to be involved in at the ballpark. We are looking forward to joining forces with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey for a spectacular All-Star Game.”

The All-Star Game will include a post-game Fireworks Show, entertainment from the ZOOperstars!, BirdZerk and all the mascots from around the Atlantic League.

“We are delighted to team up with the Somerset Patriots and RWJBarnabas Health for the All-Star Game,” said Mary Ann Christopher, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey’s Vice President of Clinical Operations. “What’s better than offering affordable family fun with three great partners that are really entrenched and devoted to the community in New Jersey?”

The 20th Atlantic League All-Star Game will be the third time the event will take place in Bridgewater. The Somerset Patriots hosted the mid-summer classic in 2000 and 2008 to sellout crowds.

In addition to a home run derby before the game, fans will also be treated to a pre-game autograph session with all the All-Star players and coaches and special giveaways at the gate including commemorative tickets, programs, baseball cards, and more.
