There are tons of activities planned for the John Hancock All-Star FanFest. It will be loads of fun for everyone from kids to senior citizens. We are going to outline th entire festival which will be at Cobo Center from July 8-12, 2005.

What is it like to be a baseball player? Walk through a real clubhouse just like the major leaguers do. You can see real lockers for today's All-Star players. You can explore a real dugout.

Create your own memorbilia. Get your picture on a Wheaties cereal box just like the champions do. You can also get your picture on the cover of Sports Weekly. Make your own baseball card and pose as a real player. Have your picture placed on the cover of your hometown newspaper.

There will be several broadcast studios. Be like the professionals and announce your own sportscast and be an anchor for "Fox Sports Net Sports Report." Upon entering the show, you will be greeted by local radio personalities. Sit at the mic and record your own play-by-play of a famous moment and take it home on tape.

At the All-Star Bazaar, you will be able to take home free giveaways from the sponsors of this wonderful event. If you sign up for a MBNA MLB MasterCard, you will recieve another FREE gift.

Bring your kids because this one is for them. They will get a chance to build their own teddy bear. Use your favorite team uniform and dress your own stuffed animal. While supplies last. They can also play the newest MLB video game and computer game.

For those of you who like hands-on activities, you will love FanFest. You can test your swinging with the Fanfest batting practice. Try pitching on the mound in the Fanfest Bullpen. Grab a glove and try to catch fast balls.

Century 21 is sponsoring the Home Run Derby. They are giving you the chance to go to home plate and take your shot at hitting a home run. So long!!! Test your catching skills in the Game Saving Catch and get a picture to capture the moment.

Visit the Clubhouse Store to purchase souvenirs from the All-Star Game. You will also have the chance to bid on special auction items on Tuesday, July 12th. At the Collector's Showcase you can buy, sell or trade collectibles.

Each day of the festival, several baseball players and legends will be signing FREE autographs for the fans. Of those, Luis Aparico, Orlando Capeda, Andre Dawson, Bill Freehan, Harmon Killebrew, Gaylord Perry, Earl Weaver and more.

For those of your history buffs, you will have lots to see. Take a look at the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum with artifacts and photograpghs. Take a look into the Minor League Baseball with caps from all 160 clubs.
