We are very excited to rollout our 2014 fundraiser… Closing Ceremonies at PK Park hosted by the Eugene Ems on Saturday June 28th. This will be a day of fun and celebration as we conclude our 2014 season and head into the summer months.
Saturday, June 28th the Eugene Ems will host Eugene Little League at PK Park for our Closing Ceremonies extravaganza. The festivities will begin at 2pm at PK Park where we will be having a home-run derby contest out on the field for kids in all of our divisions. Additionally, we will have a silent auction going that consists of gift baskets put together by each team and some other items from our community sponsors. We will also have the Ems Funzone setup so get ready for a great day and then a great night with the Ems.
Home Run Derby/Silent Auction (2-5pm)
We will have the field setup to host home run derby from 2-5pm. Coaches will select 2 players from your team to compete in the derby. The Tball and MP kids will be setup in the outfield up against the fence so they can get the feel of putting one of out the ballpark and the AAA/Majors/5070 kids will be on the main infield with a temporary fence setup. We would ask that each coach stays with their team while on the field and helps our volunteers run your team through the setup. The 2 winners from each player pitch baseball divisions and softball divisions will compete just prior to the Ems game on the main field with the whole crowd and teams watching! :) We will have a trophy for 1st and 2nd place in each division to be handed out at the conclusion of the Derby.
During the Home Run Derby, parents and guests will be able to peruse and bid on some amazing gift baskets that our teams put together in a silent auction. The silent auction will run from the start of Closing Ceremonies at 2pm up until the 6th inning of the Ems game. Winners will be announced over the PA and on the JumboTron.
Night at the Ballpark with the Ems (5-10pm)
After our home-run derby finishes at 5pm, we will begin preparation of the on field parade of players. All teams need to be lined up and ready in the staging area outside of the outfield fence (we'll show you where to go) by 5:30pm. The parade will start at 6:05pm, followed by the Home-run derby finals. From there, we'll enjoy an awesome night of baseball as the Ems open their season. We will be partaking in most if not all of the between innings games/contests and we'll be randomly selecting those folks throughout the day. Those will be both players and coaches… :) Also, one lucky T-baller will get to say "Play Ball" into the PA after the singing of the National Anthem, one kiddo will get to announce the batters for an inning...and the list goes on and on.
The ballpark will remain open so everyone that purchased tickets can make their way to their seats and take advantage of Happy Hour that will be available from 5-7 (Thanks Allan!!!). From there, it’s a fun-filled evening with the Ems as they take on the Volcanos.
Please help us to raise some much needed funds and celebrate all of the players, coaches and volunteers that made this season a great one!

We need to have this done as soon as possible, and no later than 3/31/14. All coaches/managers must complete this in order to receive final sign off for season play.
