To add a country flare, Rupp has also invited his friend, and one of Nashville's hottest songwriters, Tyler Reeve to perform a small set. Tyler's catalogue includes numerous album cuts and singles, including Love & Theft's critically acclaimed single, "Whiskey On My Breath," Brett Young's "In Case You Didn't Know," and Luke Combs' "I Got Away With You."

"Animals and baseball are my passions and being able to combine the two has been a dream come true," Rupp said. "My goal is to make Ruppapalooza an annual event, in which we take on a wide variety of animal-related issues and hopefully figure out a way to make a significant difference."

Tickets for the event are on sale now and expected to sell out. A $35 general admission ticket will provide one free drink, and all-you-can-eat baseball fare. The $55 VIP ticket will additionally include exclusive access to the VIP lounge with the Phillies players.
