Elizabethton Twins Baseball continues to be a great attraction for area churches. Last season more than a dozen local congregations participated in Church Fellowship Nights at Joe O'Brien Field. 'We are very excited about this coming season and the ability we have to open up our stadium to what we feel is a very important segment of our community," said Mike Mains, Elizabethton Parks and Recreation Director. "Local churches play such an important role in the daily lives of many of our citizens and we want to do everything possible to make Minor League Baseball an option for this wonderful form of family fellowship."

Church Fellowship Nights consist of variety of events at Joe O'Brien Field. Churches will be given tickets to the game which will be disbursed among their congregation. Church congregations will have the opportunity to take part in pre-game ceremonies which include greeting fans, throwing out the first pitch and singing the national anthem. In addition to these opportunities several churches will also hold pre-game cookouts for their membership prior to the game. Once the game starts the fun continues as several individuals from the church will be selected to take part in between inning games which consist of Hillbilly Horseshoes, Let's Make A Deal and the great Chicken Flickin contest.

"We want to give families of all ages the opportunity to enjoy an inexpensive night of family fun. Twins Baseball is about giving back to our community and in doing so we have reduced our rates for our Church Fellowships Nights so that we can see even more new faces at the stadium, said Mains." If you are interested in having a Church Fellowship Night at Joe O'Brien Field you may call the Elizabethton Twins at 547-6441.
