We’re incredibly excited to announce that 2015 World YoYo Champion Zach Gormley will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at a Cleveland Indians baseball game the night before the 2016 World YoYo Contest begins!
On August 2nd the Cleveland Indians will play the Minnesota Twins at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio, and Zach Gormley will kick everything off with the first pitch and then stick around for a quick yoyo routine during the 7th Inning Stretch. (Progressive Field is just a 15-minute walk from the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, the venue and hotel for the World YoYo Contest.) The 2016 World YoYo Contest runs August 3-6.
Tickets for the game range from $10 – $84, and can be purchased online here:
