Suns host weekend of promotions

The Hagerstown Suns will host a number of promotions this weekend, starting Saturday morning with a free baseball clinic.

The clinic, run by Suns players and coaches, is open to children ages 7-12 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m., and every child must be accompanied by a guardian who must sign a waiver to enable the child to participate. All participants in the clinic will receive a free ticket to that evening's 7:05 p.m. game against Lake County.

On Sunday, the Suns will host the "Dog Days of Summer" and their second annual Fan Home Run Derby following the 1:35 p.m. game against Lake County.

Fans are invited to bring their dogs to the game to march in a pre-game parade and compete in a dog/owner look-alike contest.

Water bowls will be placed around the stadium for the dogs, but dog owners are solely responsible for the clean-up of their own dogs.

After the game, fans will be invited to take the field to try to hit home runs. The derby will be broken down into three age divisions: 12-and-under, 13-17 and 18-and-over.

Aluminum bats are permitted, and fans are encouraged to bring their own bats. If no home run is hit in any of the age divisions, the participant who hits the farthest ball in the air in that division will be declared the winner.

Fans can register for the free derby during Sunday's game at the Massey Hyundai Fan Services Booth.
