FIRST HORIZON PARK IS GOING TO THE DOGS, AGAIN
The Greensboro Grasshoppers are proud to open its gates August 21 to all fans, two and four-legged, for Miss Babe Ruthâ€™s second â€œBark in the Parkâ€ of the season, sponsored by Novartis Animal Health in association with the Animal Rescue and Foster Program.
Dogs will be admitted to the ballpark with the purchase of a â€œPooch Passâ€, which is available for $3.00 at First Horizon Park. An accompanying registration form is also required.
The game-long event will take place on Nattyâ€™s Hill, allowing fans and their pups to socialize and enjoy the game. Complimentary pet sitting areas, clean-up bags, water and treats will also be made available to the participants. Pets and their owners are encouraged take part in the contests which include â€˜Dog That Looks Most Like Ownerâ€™, â€˜Biggest Dogâ€™ and â€˜Best Trickâ€™ as well as the pre-game parade, which will begin promptly at 6:30pm from Nattyâ€™s Hill.
Participating dogs must be spayed or neutered and be current with all shots. All â€œPooch Passâ€ proceeds go to the Animal Rescue and Foster Program.
For more information, visit www.gsohoppers.com or contact Todd Olson at 336.268.BALL…….(I think I will have to bring Kerry Gladson’s ‘ole racoon dog to the game and let him sit up in the booth or on the roof/roof so he can tell the listeners about the “Dog Days of August”.)
