Do you remember when you took your first swing at a baseball?
Does that game-winning home run you hit in the bottom of the sixth inning against your Little League rivals still seem crystal clear in your mind?
Did Field of Dreams make you cry? Well, not so much “cry,” but maybe, y’know, mist up a little bit?
If any of the above questions strike a chord in your heart, then we just may have an event for you. The Seasons Resort, in the heart of The Mt. Washington Valley, will host a Wiffle Ball fundraising tournament October 19-20, 2013, at their brand new field, affectionately named Fenway Jr. And let’s be honest, haven’t you at some point pictured yourself launching one over the Green Monster? Well, here’s your chance to do so, all while raising money for the Boston-based charity Youk’s Kids, and North Conway’s Shooting Star Fund.
So if you have a group of nine infielders and outfielders ready to hit the field and make memories, contact Marketing@SeasonsNH.com to learn about this unique tournament.
And remember, your inner child may be watching you…
