The YC community gathered at Clague Park on May 24 for YC’s first-ever Baseball Showdown! The event was the culmination of three weeks of practice for the participants and volunteers. It was a beautiful spring afternoon with the fence decked out with balloons to cheer on the Bubble Gum Banana Splits and Red Running Rabbits. Bubble Gum Banana Splits came out ahead 12-10 in a very close game against the Running Red Rabbits.
The Volunteer Committee piled on the fun with lots of fanfare! Participants, volunteers and spectators enjoyed a face painting station, and a ‘costume race’ at the end of the game (based on the famous condiment race of the Guardians.) Volunteers Sean, Mya, and Harsha faced off against Jimmy and Megan – the two Staff Members our participants voted to be a part of the race! The loser, Sean, was then pied in the face! Participants were able to enjoy popsicles, donuts and brownies.
All in all, the first Baseball Showdown was a major success, and we look forward to more fun in the years to come!
