If you offer candy, they will come. Municipal Stadium in Hagerstown became a field of dreams on Saturday as thousands of children realized their biggest fantasy - the ground covered in sweets. In an area of the ballpark where players prowl for line drives and home runs are smashed over the fences, children scrambled for plastic eggs filled with treats. It was a free communitywide egg hunt organized by Lifehouse Church, an event held in partnership with local businesses. “It's our way of reaching out to children and families, sharing our love and providing everyone with a fun day,” said Sheliea Athey, administrative assistant for the church's outreach team.
