Celebrities scheduled to attend include Mad Men‘s Jon Hamm, Kansas City native and Modern Family actor Eric Stonestreet, Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel and Glee‘s Chord Overstreet. July 9th is the traditional Home Run Derby, where former Milwaukee Brewer and current Detroit Tiger Prince Fielder will join the American League team.
