Ottawa Champions Hope to Hit Home Run with All-Star Game

As part of the official Ottawa 2017 celebrations, The Ottawa Champions will play host to the Can-Am/American Association All Star Game festivities. The event runs July 24th and 25th at the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton (RCGT) Park, starting with a skills competition and followed by a classic Home Run Derby. The next day, July 25th, the All-Star Game kicks off at 7:05 PM.

Skills Competition

Each participant will go head-to-head with an American Association counterpart, with one running from home to home, and the other running from second to second. The winner of each round will move on, with the best time receiving a bye to the final.

Home Run Derby

The three Can-Am League participants will take part in a timed event against three participants from the American Association, with each player getting three minutes to hit as many homeruns as possible.

The top four participants will move on to the semi-finals, and the top two from there will face off for the title.

Making History

This is the first time that Ottawa has hosted a professional baseball all star game, with the event playing host to players, families, and fans from Texas, Winnipeg, Quebec, New York, and the American mid-west. With the affordable ticket price of $18/adult, this is an excellent opportunity for the entire family. Tickets do not specify seating, so make sure you get there early (Gates open at 5:30 PM).

You can purchase your tickets online at, by phone at 613-745-2255, and in person at the RCGT Park box office.
