Aces Baseball to Host ‘We All Play’ Night June 8
The Owatonna Aces Baseball Club will host a "We All Play" Night Saturday, June 8 at 7:30 pm as they host the Rochester Royals at Fuller Field at Dartt's Park. The Aces are proud to support the drive for an inclusive playground and Miracle Field baseball/softball diamond. The night will include honoring Owatonna Area Special Olympics.
Missy Ahrens will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at 7:15 pm. Special Olympics athletes get in free with a paid adult. Game tickets are just one-dollar. You might want to overpay to get into the game, as money raised will go toward "We All Play." Part of the concession stand sales plus other fundraising events will also be part of the night.
Plans continue to move forward for an inclusive playground and Miracle Field at Manthey Park in Owatonna. A number of local businesses and sports teams and organizations have contributed to the effort.
Learn more about the project by visiting their website. Part of their statement says, "Our dream is to create intergenerational playground for people of all abilities. We want babies to be safe, toddlers to explore, and children and teens to be challenged."
The Aces are coming off an 11-1, seven-inning loss at Stewartville-Racine Wednesday night. Owatonna travels to Waterville Friday before their home game Saturday.
