Becky Hammon Retirement Ceremony
The San Antonio Stars will host a Becky Hammon retirement ceremony presented by SWBC on August 15. The ceremony, which will take place following the Stars-Lynx game, will honor the career of guard Becky Hammon, who on July 23 announced that she will retire at the conclusion of the 2014 season.
Hammon, who is currently a spokesperson for SWBC, was named one of the WNBA’s Top 15 Players of All Time in July of 2011. Now in her eighth season in San Antonio, Hammon is the Stars all-time leader in assists, three-point field goals made and points per game while ranking second in franchise history in points and games.
Participants in the ceremony will include Hammon, WNBA President Laurel Richie, Stars Head Coach Dan Hughes and RC Buford, the president of sports franchises for Spurs Sports & Entertainment. The event will air live on Fox Sports Southwest, following the Stars-Lynx broadcast.
The Stars have created a special ticket package for the game. For $25, fans receive a lower level seat, a Becky Hammon basketball, a commemorative ticket, and a custom lapel pin.
All fans in attendance will receive a commemorative poster. Tickets to the game can be purchased online at SAStars.com or by calling 210-444-5090.
