The Thomaston Recreation Department will host it's annual Field of Dreams night on Saturday, June 13th, 2015. The evening is designed for our major and minor league baseball and softball athletes to showcase the skills they developed over the course of the season. It is also an evening for tee ball players to end their season with a bounce house and balloon animal booth, a night for parents and volunteers to participate as players, and a time for loads of laughter and hours of fun! Activities include a Home Run Derby, a Fastest Pitch Contest, an Accuracy Challenge, a Speed Test, a Consecutive Hit Contest, and a Bunting Competition. The evening ends with an adults only game coached by our Little League teams!
Concessions will be open throughout the night. Ribbons will be awarded for the top three athletes in each division in each contest. The evening commences with the coveted 2015 Thomaston Recreation Department Volunteer award, given to an individual who has shown consistent dedication and support to the department during the athletic year. Please look below for the schedule of activities.
