“If you love baseball as much as we do, then Baseball City will be your paradise for two action packed days come March,” said Michael Principe, CEO of The Legacy Agency, in a prepared statement. “From meeting your favorite baseball stars, to the hands-on action, the excitement doesn’t stop and we have it all, including free contests and giveaways all day long at Baseball City.”
