Trash Pandas to host block party, other events, at Toyota Field

MADISON– The Rocket City Trash Pandas say they are ready to kick off the 2020 Toyota Field non-baseball schedule with a trio of events.

On Saturday, June 6, the Trash Pandas are hosting a block party featuring trivia, live music, and fireworks. Admission is $10 per person and fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance online at trashpandasbaseball.com/events. Classic ballpark fare and beverages will be available for purchase, and parking is free. Gates open at 5 p.m.

For kids age 7-14, two instructional baseball camps will take place on June 15-16 and June 22-23. The camp costs $200 per child and runs 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. each day.

“It is designed to provide campers with the next level knowledge of baseball, crafted for those who want a more advanced and technical experience,” said Trash Pandas spokesperson Josh Caray. Lunch is provided. Registration for the instructional camps goes on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday, May 29.

Trash Pandas Day Camp begins next week for kids age 5-12. Two sessions are currently available for registration: June 1-5 and June 8-12. The all-day activities camp costs $250 per child and will feature arts and crafts, kickball on the field, reading time, batting cages with hitting instruction, movie time with lunch included, and more.

If both weeks are purchased, the child will receive a complimentary one-year Sprocket Kid’s Club membership.

Sessions run from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day, and additional information can be found at trashpandasbaseball.com/camp.

“We are thrilled to finally share this beautiful stadium with the people who have supported us for so long,” says President & CEO Ralph Nelson. “We can’t wait to have fans of all ages creating memorable experiences in and around the ballpark.”

Caray said all upcoming events at Toyota Field will be compliant with Center for Disease Control guidelines, and Trash Pandas staff members will follow safety protocols of wearing masks, regularly sanitizing all areas of the ballpark, social distancing, and limiting stadium occupancy to 50 percent.
