BIG3 Skips San Antonio

Published

on

On July 19, 2019 the Big3 announced that a brand new major basketball festival will be taking place in Dallas, TX on August, 17th, the day the league was scheduled to play in San Antonio. It is my understanding that this is the third season the BIG3 has skipped San Antonio.

It is unfortunate that ticket holders like myself had to find out through individual sources and Facebook that the game was canceled. So, in the event you are a Big3 ticket holder and was not aware that the San Antonio games have been canceled, it is a fact. If you purchased your tickets through Ticketmaster online you will want to follow up on your refund by calling the Ticketmaster Fan Support line.

The “New” Basketball Festival is supposed to include additional events throughout the entire weekend to included musical performances by rappers T.I. and Yella Beezy. The festival is also set to feature all six weekly games on one day at American Airlines Center with fans being able to watch six games with just one ticket and experience a series of Young3 clinics for area youth throughout the weekend, with player meet and greets for fans.

A Final Farewell for Hank Aaron

Hall of Famer and baseball legend Henry Louis Aaron nicknamed Hammerin’ Hank was laid to rest today. Aaron died of natural causes (not COVID related) last Friday at the age of 86. Regarded of as one of baseball’s greatest players of all time, he played 23 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB), 21 of those seasons with the Milwaukee/Atlanta Braves. While enduring racists threats and using hate mail from fans as motivation to surpass Babe Ruth’s home run record in 1974, with a career 755 home runs, Aaron held the home run record for 33yrs before it was broken by Barry Bonds who was later investigated for possible enhancement drugs violations.

Many have paid their respects to the legend including former Presidents Jimmy Carter, 96; Bill Clinton, 74; George W. Bush, 74; and Barack Obama, 59. To the world Aaron was more than a baseball player, he was a pioneer in the sport, a cultural icon, civil rights advocate and barrier breaker. He broke records and held many titles and his record of representing the Braves at the All-Star games 25 times remains untouched to this day.
