  • Bring a case of bottled wather to donate to Boys & Girls Club to get THREE BONUS Swings!!  A tent wil be setup by the Morton Building where the cases of water can be dropped off.  If you dropped off a case of water on 7/12, you can proceed directly to The Patio Concession Pavillion to check-in.
  • Awards will be given to the Champion in each division.  In the event of a tie, there will be a one-swing ‘swing-off’.  Details will be provided to participants in the event of a tie.  Players must be present at the appropriate field at the time of the ‘swing-off’ or they will be disqualified.
  • Participants will be allowed to shag balls in the outfield under the following guidelines:
    • Players MUST pay attention to the hitter at all times!
    • Players MUST allow EVERY batted ball to hit the ground before fielding it.
    • Players should immediately throw balls to a designated location so balls can be collected & returned to the pitcher.
    • The # of players allowed on the field at any time will be limited to ensure player safety.
    • The Field Coordinator reserves the right to remove any player(s) from the field for any reason.
  • The scoreboard on the Mustang, Bronco, Pony & Colt Fields will be used to track each hitter’s progress as follows:
    • Home Score = # of Home Runs
    • Visitor Score = # of Swings Taken
Also, please note that the follow is planned at the Complex on Monday night, too!
  • B-N Community Bank is running a grill with $1 hot dogs.  The full Patio menu will also be available.
  • TEKSystems Dunk Tank - kids (& adults) can be 'targets', so bring towels & dry clothes!!
