During the program, $500 scholarships will be awarded to four athletes. Area businesses contributed to make these scholarships possible.
Cross-town rivals Lorain Admiral King and Lorain Southview play under the lights at 7:00 p.m. These teams will be outfitted in throwback jerseys of the Chicago-American Giants (Admiral King) and the Indianapolis Clowns (Southview). Kohlmyer’s generously donated the jerseys. The evening will be topped off with fireworks.
Besides the program, baseball game, and fireworks, numerous local organizations will be providing displays and activities throughout the evening. Following the game, children will be given the opportunity to run the bases.
Cost for the evening is $5.00 for box seats and $3.00 for general admission. All proceeds will benefit the Pipe Yard.
Join us for this fun-filled, memorable evening!
Sincerely,

David Darr
