The Toledo Mud Hens are teaming up with the City of Toledo to host the first-ever PLAY BALL event at Fifth Third Field on Sunday, June 6. The event is part of an ongoing effort to build connections between baseball and the Toledo community.

The event is in conjunction with Major League Baseball's PLAY BALL program, whose mission is to encourage young people and communities to engage in baseball or softball-related activities. PLAY BALL events demonstrate the positive way the game can serve as an outlet for physical activity, fun with friends, and learning how to play the sport at its most basic level.

Special guests include:

  • Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz
  • MLB Play Ball Senior Manager Bennett Shields

The event is open to any baseball or softball novice aged 5 to 12 years old. Each session features five skill stations for participants to learn baseball fundamentals. All children will receive a free PLAY BALL branded bat and ball set to take home. Participants must register in advance.
