Get ready for this year’s Principal Financial Group Family Fun Fest at CommunityAmerica Ballpark on Sunday, June 22. Just outside the ballpark, from 2:05 until the start of the game, baseball fans of all ages can enjoy the free event with more than 20 baseball-themed attractions.
Try the batting and pitching cages, bungee runs, side-by-side super slide, baseball bounce houses and more. Visit the Xbox 360 Best Buy Home Run Derby video game trailer with a rock band stage or go to the minor league baseball museum. The fun does not stop there because you can also put yourself on a free souvenir Days Inn baseball card or Sport Illustrated Kids Magazine cover.
Also, bring new or gently used baseball equipment to the ballpark for Pitch In For Baseball, which is an organization that distributes baseball gear to underserved communities around the world. You will receive a coupon for Xbox 360 software at Best Buy and a special ticket offer from the team.
Sunday’s game is scheduled to start at 5:05 against the Joliet JackHammers. Tickets to the game are available at https://www.ticketreturn.com/prod2/Buy.asp?EventID=28729 or (913) 328-2255.
