The Toledo Mud Hens are teaming up with the City of Toledo, and Major League Baseball to host our annual PLAY BALL event at Fifth Third Field on Saturday, June 11 as a part of our PLAY BALL Weekend. This day of fun is part of an ongoing effort to build connections between youth sports and the Toledo community.

PLAY BALL is free and open to any baseball or softball novice aged 4 to 12 years old. Each session features five skill stations for participants to learn baseball fundamentals. All children will receive a free PLAY BALL-branded bat and ball set to take home. Participants must be preregistered.

Special Guests:

  • Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz
  • Chet Trail - City of Toledo Little League Ambassador

The PLAY BALL initiative is baseball’s collective effort to encourage young people and communities to engage in baseball or softball-related activities, including formal leagues, special events, and casual forms of play. PLAY BALL events have become MLB’s signature youth engagement activity during the professional and amateur baseball and softball calendar, especially on key dates throughout MLB’s Championship Season and through the World Series. PLAY BALL events demonstrate the positive way the game can serve as an outlet for physical activity, fun with friends and learning how to play the sport at its most basic levels.
