When: Thursday, June 20
Time: 5 p.m. – 9 p.m.
Where: Council Bluffs Recreation Complex
2900 Richard Downing Ave.
Council Bluffs, Iowa 51501
What: Domingo Ayala, Bat Explosion, Pin Trading, Burning of the Bats, Vendors, Skills Challenge, Pro Player Workout, Official SlumpBuster Merch and more!
At 6:10 p.m. Domingo Ayala will kick things off on Field 10 with one of his hilarious shows. Following the show, Domingo will then lead the countdown for the famous Bat Explosion. Once the fire has been managed teams will be able to line up for the Burning of the Bats so make sure you bring a wooden bat!
We are expecting upwards of 10,000 people to attend this year’s festival, so plan accordingly and carpool if possible. Once the main lots at the sports complex are full, the police will be shutting off the road and directing attendees to park in the shopping center across the street from the complex. You will then need to walk roughly a quarter of a mile to the festivities.
The Pro Player Workout with the Iowa Western coaching staff will take place from 6-8:30pm on Fields #7 & #8. Skills Challenge will be held on Fields #1-4 (See Map Below).
Make sure to stop and see all of our vendors: Argent Sports, Baseball Lifestyle 101, Bownet, Dave and Busters, Dicks Sporting Goods, Easton Diamond Sports, Mister Wrist Bands, Mizuno, Prime Time Sporting Goods, Spiderz Batting Gloves, uHIT, VukGripz and YSPN.
Limited food and drink options will be available in the concession stands so don’t show up starving.
