Recreation Department Sponsoring Twins vs. Yankees Baseball Trip

By Staff | Mar 25, 2008

Now that the calendar has decided that Spring has arrived, thoughts are turning towards the national pasttime of baseball. This Spring, the Emmetsburg Recreation Department and Emmetsburg Little League are joining forces to sponsor a bus trip to a Minnesota Twins baseball game. The trip will be open to boys and girls who are involved in the Emmetsburg Little League or Pony League program, as well as their parents or legal guardian.

The 2008 Twins Baseball Trip will be even more special, as the Twin will entertain the New York Yankees in an afternoon contest at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis on Sunday, June 1.

The charter bus will leave at 8:00 a.m. from the Emmetsburg High School Parking lot. There will not be a stop on the way to the game, so riders should bring a sack lunch and their own bottled water or pop, in containers with resealable caps, in accordance with the charter company regulations.

Game time for the Twins and Yankees will be at 1:10 p.m. The Emmetsburg group will be seated in the lower level Home Run porch at the Metrodome.

Attendance on the trip is limited to the first 46 people who sign up. Cost for the outing is $35 per person, which includes bus transportation and game ticket.

Registration for this outing will be on a first-come, first-served basis. A parent or legal guardian must accompany children during the trip. Parents may take other Little League or Pony League players if their parents cannot attend the game. However, a limit of five kids per parent or adult will be enforced Parents or legal guardians will be responsible for their children or others they take during the trip.

The outing provides youth players with an excellent opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of a major league baseball game and see the baseball stars of today in action in person.

Anyone with questions on the Emmetsburg Recreation Department/Emmetsburg Little League Association’s baseball trip can contact Recreation Director Mike Dunlap at 712-852-3383.
