So Angels fans, are you missing baseball? I’m guessing the answer is a resounding yes.
Well, if you live in the SoCal area, here’s your chance to get out onto the field at the Big A, swing for the fences and support our community this Thanksgiving.
The Angels’ Groundskeepers are hosting their 12th annual Thanksgiving Holiday Canned Food Drive at Angel Stadium, Friday, November 16th through Sunday, November 18th (weather permitting), to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
For a donation of three (3) cans of non-perishable food or $2, you will be able to step up to the plate and give your one best Major League swing against a pitching machine. There’s a maximum of 20 pitches per person.
Would you like to try and see if you can get one over the plate? If you donate two (2) cans of food or $1, you can throw a pitch in the bullpen.
For those fans who want to shag fly balls, $25 will get you 15 minutes in the outfield.
The Angels will provide the bats, balls and helmets. And as a bonus, the Angels Clubhouse Attendants will be on hand giving tours of the Clubhouse for a $10 donation.
Sounds like the perfect thing to help deal with the offseason blues, right?
Whether you are a kid or a kid at heart, take this opportunity to be a Major Leaguer for a day and help support one of Orange County’s great organizations in the Second Harvest Food Bank.
Head out to the Big A this Friday, November 16th through Sunday November 18th, between 8am and 4pm, through Gate #1 and then down to the Field Level.
Have fun and good luck!!
