Swing, Batter! Apollo High School’s Hosting a Fun Wiffle Ball Tournament
When I was a kid, I spent endless amounts of hours on the baseball fields at Thruston Elementary. That's pretty much how my friends and I spent our childhoods. And, when we weren't playing actual t-ball, minor or little league games on the fields, we were playing pop games off the field too. There were many nights at the playground that we played "cup" ball. Did you do that? We would get a cup from the concession stand and crush it into the shape of a ball. Then, we'd play cup ball.
We also played and loved Wiffle Ball, which was basically baseball with plastic bats and balls. While I'll admit that it stung like crap when we got clocked in the leg or the arm with the wiffle ball, it was a blast playing. Remember?? In wiffle ball (at least when we played), you could throw the ball at the runner. If you hit 'em, they were out.
Well, this Fall, the Apollo High School Baseball team is bringing back the sport and giving us a taste of ballpark nostalgia with a Wiffle Ball Tournament fundraiser.
The tournament is set for Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th. The fee is just $100 per team and proceeds will benefit the Apollo Baseball Team as they prepare for the upcoming season.
There are four different divisions available too: 13 & Under, 14 & Over, Coed, and Family.
The tournament will be held at Pleasant Grove Park at 5664 Kentucky Highway 56.
Here's everything you need to know about the event and how to get a team signed up!
