One More Swing for the Fences with Scotts

June 19, 2020

The Columbus Clippers and Scotts have partnered, with the permission and support of the OHSAA, to give high school seniors one final chance to swing for the fences.

The Columbus Clippers and Scotts have partnered, with the permission and support of the OHSAA, to give high school seniors one final chance to swing for the fences.

Starting June 22, Huntington Park will open its doors for area senior baseball and softball players to “step to the plate”. Senior players will proudly don their uniforms and hit one final grand slam, pitched by their coach and be featured on the video board. Parents, friends and family are invited to safely social distance within the park to take in this moment.

The COVID-19 pandemic left our area senior baseball and softball players unable to play in their final season. While we cannot erase that sadness, we can offer an alternative that gives them overdue recognition as they close out their high school sports career. All central Ohio high schools are invited to visit the Clippers website (www.clippersbaseball.com) to sign up for a one hour time-frame at Huntington Park to ”swing for the fences”.

OHSAA Executive Director Jerry Snodgrass: “Everyone behind the scenes connected to baseball and softball in Ohio realize the tremendous sacrifices so many of our players unwillingly made with their seasons canceled due to this pandemic. Our parents, schools, coaches and communities have gone to great lengths to honor our seniors who gave up their final season of high school ball. We are fortunate the Clippers are committing themselves to make this opportunity possible for central Ohio schools. We encourage all our senior baseball and softball players to take advantage of this final at bat at Huntington Park, one of the greatest ballparks in the nation”.

Clippers President and General Manager Ken Schnacke: “We are honored to partner up with Scotts for this wonderful and unique opportunity to give our senior baseball and softball players a moment to shine after having their senior seasons cancelled by this pandemic that grips our country. This moment would not be possible without the tremendous support of Scotts, one of our most ardent supporters of Columbus Clippers Baseball at Huntington Park”.

Josh Peoples, SVP, Chief Brand Officer, Scotts: "Scotts is proud to have supported the Clippers organization for so many years precisely because of their invaluable impact on the Columbus community. This is an unforgettable event for these young players and we're thrilled to be a part of it."
