It's that time of year... Ridgefield Little League (RLL) is well into their spring season, and as a way to celebrate their graduating players, RLL hosts Slugfest, a free hitting contest for all 12-year old players, on Friday, June 2, beginning at 5:00 p.m. at Fitzgerald Field.
As players, parents, friends and fans gather in Ridgebury, players (who will receive a FREE Slugfest t-shirt) get to swing for the stars!
Points are given for distance and there are prizes for the winners. There are free pizzas for hitting targets too. But more importantly, the players celebrate baseball and each other with high-fives, chants and cheers. There will be winners, but most will leave with only their Slugfest tee shirt and the memories of many evenings on Ridgefield ball fields.
This evening in Ridgefield truly celebrates America's favorite pasttime and young men and women of all sizes and talent who play the game!
