Hit a home run in Kentucky Proud Park, win season tickets

UK Baseball is inviting its fans to go out to Kentucky Proud Park this Saturday to participate in a home run derby for free season tickets. The “Swing For Your Seats” event offers fans the opportunity to take five pitches from a pitching machine. From there it is pretty simple: hit a home run, win 2020 season tickets to all UK home games.

Five swings against the machine will cost $20 for adults, $15 for UK students and staff and $10 for children. Children under eight years old will need to clear a 200-foot wall, kids 8-13 a 230-foot wall, and adults will have to hit a true home run.

“Swing For Your Seats” will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. before the Cats take on Arkansas in football at Kroger Field.

Proceeds will go to the UK baseball Diamond Club.

Good luck.

    Can you take pitchs if you don’t like them? Is it 5 swings or you get 5 pitchs?
