Launch-a-Ball is a great way for non-profit groups to raise money on game day. Each organziation receives numbered tennis balls to sell for $1 each or 6 for $5 from a table on the UPMC Park concourse. Groups can also walk around the ballpark and sell them in the stands and on the Suite Level. Each non-profit group receives 25% of gross sales for their night! They also receive in-park recognition via live public address announcements on their night and can display promotional materials at their table to promote their cause.

Fans who purchase from Launch-a-Ball groups will have the opportunity to toss their numbered tennis ball(s) into hula hoops on the field after the game for a chance to win a great prize from Domino's, Moe's Southwest Grill, Marco's Pizza, TGI Fridays, Max & Erma's, Greengarden Lanes, Blaze Pizza, Tim Horton's, and Taco Bell.


For more information on how your non-profit group can participate, please contact Hunter Horenstein, Community Engagement Manager, at (814) 456-1300 ext. 302.

For more details on how your business can sponsor a prize hoop, please contact Mark Pirrello, Assistant General Manager of Sales, at (814) 456-1300 ext. 306.

*Launch-a-Ball is played on most game dates, however it is not available on 11:05 AM Education Day games.
