Swings for Sparks


Take your swings on the field at Aces Ballpark for a good cause! On Saturday, November 9 from 11 a.m. until at least 4 p.m., the Reno Aces are offering the chance to step up to home plate and swing for the fences off our ATEC pitching machine!

For a minimum suggested donation of $1 per pitch, or $20 for 25 pitches, you'll be able to take batting practice on the field, with proceeds going to the SMS Compassion Fund. All proceeds will benefit those affected by the Sparks Middle School tragedy. Baseball bats and batting helmets will be provided, although fans are also welcome to bring their own equipment. Fans are also welcome to bring their fielding gloves to field hits, or practice catching pop-ups in the outfield off ATEC's Power Hummer training machine. My Favorite Muffin will provide hot drinks and snacks for all hitters.

This special event is a collaboration of the Reno Aces, the Reno Aces Foundation, the Community Foundation of Western Nevada, ATEC, and My Favorite Muffin. 100% of the donations collected at the event will go to the fund.

Donations can also be made by visiting the website, or by calling (775) 333-5499.
