She will join one winner representing each of the 30 MLB Clubs to be included in All-Star Week activities and recognized during the pre-game ceremony of the 2014 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 15 with pre-game ceremonies beginning at 7:30 p.m.
“All to often when you are in a position of service, whether you are a firefighter, police officer or teacher, you don’t get that same awe as a celebrity. So to be treated as a celebrity, this whole VIP experience has been amazing,” said Banks.
