The Peoria Rivermen are excited to announce that Disney star Peyton List, who plays the role of ‘Emma’ on the network’s hit TV show “Jessie,” will be in attendance on Saturday, Dec. 7, courtesy of CEFCU. Fans will have the opportunity to meet List, as well as receive pictures and autographs on the concourse during the 7:15 p.m. game against Huntsville.


“It’s our continued effort to do as much as we can for the fans and their families,” Rivermen co-owner Bart Rogers said. “We have had such a great response in the past with bringing these stars to Peoria that it only made sense to bring in such a well-known, young actress like Peyton. We also want to thank CEFCU for their support to help make this happen.”


List is scheduled to meet fans and sign autographs from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on the main concourse of Carver Arena. Autographs are free and will be limited to one-per-person on items you provide. In addition, the Rivermen will hold a private meet-and-greet from 5:15 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. for contest winners and corporate partners.


The 15-year old Florida native has appeared on both Saturday Night Live and the David Letterman Show. Her acting credits include “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days” and “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Rodrick Rules.” She has also appeared in the Nicolas Cage movie “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” as well as “27 Dresses” and “Remember Me.”


List will become the second celebrity guest to visit a Rivermen home game this season. Disney's Calum Worthy from the show "Austin and Ally" will appear Friday, Nov. 1st.


All fans that would like to meet List must purchase a ticket for the game. For tickets or more information, please contact the Rivermen office at (309) 676-1040 or visit the team store located inside the Peoria Civic Center.
