Join us for our inaugural Home Run Derby event at Coolray Field! Gates open and activities begin at 12:30pm – including giveaways, live music, silent auction (featuring a signed Freddie Freeman bat, Jason Heyward cleats (used in a game) and MORE!), pictures with Santa, bouncy house, local mascots, characters, face painting, and stadium food vendors.
Best of all? It’s FREE ADMISSION to all attendees! Participants will include High School Boys and Girls superstars in both baseball and softball from Gwinnett County. Special guests will include former Atlanta Brave and MLB Host Mark DeRosa and other big-name sport stars that will be announced closer to the event.
Proceeds from this Red Kettle Kick-Off Home Run Derby event will go to help thousands of lives through The Salvation Army of Gwinnett County.
