[Daytona Beach, FL] This Saturday, July 15, the Cubs will welcome NBA All-Star and local product, Vince Carter, to Jackie Robinson Ballpark.
The Mainland High School alum will be signing autographs on Saturday from 6 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. prior to the Daytona Cubs and Palm Beach Cardinals evening contest slated to begin at 7:05 p.m. The Cubs will also be holding a silent auction to benefit the Embassy of Hope with numerous great items including: signed pieces of the old Mainland Gym floor and an autographed LeBron James jersey.
Vince Carter is a seven time NBA all-star and he was a first round draft pick of the Toronto Rapters before being traded to the New Jersey Nets two seasons ago.

Since leaving for the University of North Carolina and now the NBA, Carter has continued
to show interest in the Daytona Beach and Volusia County area.
