Academy Award-Winning Actor Geena Davis to Celebrate with the Bees
SALT LAKE CITY (July 23, 2012) - On Friday, July 27, and in conjunction with Zions Bank and the Utah Film Center, the Salt Lake Bees will welcome Academy Award-winning actor Geena Davis to Spring Mobile Ballpark for a 20th anniversary celebration of her hit film "A League of Their Own."
A free showing of the film, to be introduced by Davis, will take place on the outfield grass immediately following the game. In addition, Davis will participate in batting practice with the Bees, throw the ceremonial first pitch prior to the game and lead the crowd in singing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" during the seventh-inning stretch.
The event will feature recognition of the Utah Shamrocks, one of the top women's fast-pitch softball teams in the country from 1935-78, while the current USA Baseball Women's National Team coaching staff will also take part in the celebration.
The Salt Lake Bees continue an eight-game home stand tonight at 7:05 p.m. against the Fresno Grizzlies at Spring Mobile Ballpark. 2012 Bees ticket packages are still available. For more information, call (801) 325-BASE or visit slbees.com.
