Akron RubberDucks to Host Second "Swing for Your Swag" Event August 28
(AKRON, OHIO) - Back by popular demand, the Akron RubberDucks will host their second safe, socially-distanced "Swing for your Swag" event of the summer August 28, presented by AtNetPlus. All RubberDucks fans in attendance will have the opportunity to show off their skills and win great prizes during batting practice on the field at Canal Park by hitting a baseball into designated tiered zones in the outfield within 90 seconds. Gates open for this exciting event at 6 p.m. as RubberDucks fans will have the opportunity to take batting practice and enjoy live baseball entertainment afterwards at Canal Park.
Fans can win merchandise deals and assorted prizes, including autographed memorabilia from your favorite RubberDucks players, by hitting a baseball into one of the many target zones scattered in the outfield. Among the great prizes being given away next Friday night, the grand prize of a 2021 Akron RubberDucks season ticket package will be awarded to any fan who can hit a home run over the fence in the outfield. All fans in attendance will be able to enjoy more live baseball entertainment on the HD video board in right field.
"RubberDucks fans of all ages had a blast at our first 'Swing for your Swag' event in July, and we can't wait to bring more fun to our loyal fans August 28," said RubberDucks General Manager Jim Pfander, "We've prioritized safety all summer long at Canal Park, and this second 'Swing for Your Swag' event will be another great way to bring together our RubberDucks community safely as we continue to celebrate the return of baseball."
The Akron RubberDucks will continue to follow all social distancing protocols as outlined by Gov. DeWine, Mayor Horrigan, and state and local health officials. Fans in attendance for this event at Canal Park will be socially-distanced within the seating bowl and while on the field.
