“Accessibility Day” Baseball Game and Fundraiser for Special Olympics + Arts for All + The Dream Team

Start Date: August 13, 2022 18:00

End Date: August 13, 2022 21:00

Arts for All, The Dream Team, and Special Olympics Area 2 have joined together to bring you this very special “Accessibility Day” and baseball game!

Join us for a game of baseball with Traverse City’s own team, the Pit Spitters! Just like last year, a poster making table and supplies will be available to create a poster that you can use to cheer for the team.

Get a chance to participate in a “pre-game” of softball with members of Special Olympics, The Dream Team, and Arts for All! In celebration of Accessibility Day, people of ALL abilities are welcome to participate in this inclusive pre-game – but space is limited! (After buying a Pit Spitters game ticket, you will be contacted to confirm whether there is space for you to play in the pre-game.)

You are making a difference by supporting Arts for All, The Dream Team, and Special Olympics! $3 of each ticket sold will be donated back in equal share to our organizations to support our programming.
All ages. In this inclusive and accessible event, everyone of all abilities are welcome!

$12 per ticket.

What to bring – things to consider:
– Dress for the weather! A spare light jacket, umbrella, sun hat, sunscreen, sunglasses, or light sweater are all worth considering.
– Concessions (food, drinks) are available for a fee, so you may wish to bring cash. Credit cards are also accepted.
– A seat cushion or spare towel for extra seat comfort.
– IF YOU CHOOSE TO PLAY THE PRE-GAME WITH SPECIAL OLYMPICS AND THE DREAM TEAM: You may wish to wear your own baseball/softball “uniform” which can be anything that shows your team spirit: Your favorite team’s colors (Go Blue!) or maybe your favorite logo (Special Olympics? Dream Team? Arts for All? Or something else?).
