From Sportsnet:

Watch live coverage of the ceremony on Sportsnet and right here on sportsnet.ca beginning at 3:00 p.m. ET / 12:00 p.m. PT. Host Jamie Campbell will be joined by Gregg Zaun, Jeff Blair and Jerry Howarth while Hazel Mae and Shi Davidi will be reporting from the ceremony in Florida.

The Celebration of Life will be held at Spectrum Field in Clearwater, Florida, where he had been working as a mental strength coach to young Phillies prospects.
