Guests will enjoy on-field activities like running the bases, playing catch in the outfield and a fast pitch radar gun, live Motown music by the band Crusin’, silent auction items and raffles, ballpark style hot dogs and hamburgers, pizza, soft drinks, ice cream and donuts. All are encouraged to bring their baseball mitt and ball. Auction items include a jewelry raffle, $500 gas card, “50 inch flat screen TV, Indians and Brown’s autographed sports items, golf and hotel packages, restaurant gift cards and more.
Highlighting the benefit is a fun-filled softball game featuring local celebrities and civic and community leaders vs. The LCADA Way management and Board of Directors.

Joe Matuscak, Director of Marketing & Development at The LCADA Way said, “With so many kids and families cooped up these past few months, we wanted to host an outdoor event everyone can enjoy. Working closely with the Lorain Health Department, we’ll be following recommended CDC, state and local guidelines for controlled group size based on event regulations, temperature monitoring, face coverings, hand washing, social distancing and food safety. Our goal is to have a safe and fun event.”
