New York, NY, September 21, 2021 — Minor League Baseball™ (MiLB™) today announced the creation of a charitable component to the 10-game Triple-A Final Stretch of games that will benefit 501(c)3 charities in each Triple-A city.

For each home run hit by Triple-A teams (home and road games) during the Triple-A Final Stretch, Minor League Baseball will donate $50 per home run to a local charity selected by the team. The team hitting the most home runs over the 10-game span will generate an extra $5,000 donation for their charity.

The Triple-A Final Stretch begins tonight, when Jacksonville hosts Memphis, while the remaining Triple-A clubs will begin their Final Stretch games on Sept. 22 or 23. The Clippers will open their Final Stretch on Wednesday, September 22 in Nashville and return home to Huntington Park on Wednesday, September 29 against Louisville.

“Minor League Baseball teams have long been great community partners, and we are pleased to make a donation to each of these local charities on behalf of our Triple-A teams for their performance during the Triple-A Final Stretch,” said Major League Baseball’s Vice President, Minor League Operations and Development, Peter Woodfork. “These charities provide a variety of valuable services to their community, and it is our honor to recognize their efforts.”

"The Triple-A Final Stretch is another chance for us to strengthen our long standing relationship with the Buckeye Ranch," said Clippers President and General Manager Ken Schnacke. "In celebration of the final five games of the 2021 season at Huntington Park, September 29 - October 3, all Reserved and Bleacher Seats are just $5!"
