Home Run Derby:
Sign up to secure a spot in the wiffle ball home run derby. Each player will get 5 outs. Hitting it over the fence, or hit one of the prize signs DOES NOT count towards an out. Ages 11 and up hit on the adult field and ages 3-10 hit on the kids field.
Baseball in the Park:
At the turn of the 20th century, the citizens of Raleigh gathered on weekends at Moore Square for baseball, BBQ and socializing. On April 18th, MLB Raleigh and the City of Raleigh will partner to bring that tradition back. The day long “Baseball in the Park” event is the collaboration of a dozen local organizations and businesses, including Trophy Brewing, COR Museum and Marbles IMax. Activities include a baseball brunch, whiffle-ball home run derby (open to all ages), history exhibit, kids’ activities and an outdoor showing of “A League of Their Own” to cap off the night. Proceeds from the event will go to Boys and Girls Club of East Raleigh and the 919 Young and Active Fund, a new MLB Raleigh sponsored Parks and Rec scholarship program aiming, at a minimum, to cover 25 participant fees for sports and/or creative programs.
