Play Ball 2018


The Recreation and Cultural Arts Department will be hosting the Mayor’s Play Ball Summer event in conjunction with the United State Conference of Mayors (USCM) and Major League Baseball on Friday, June 22, 2018 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Flamingo Park.  This free event, which promotes youth baseball and softball, will feature fun activities, music and food.

There will be a Pitch, Hit, Run Competition with separate age divisions, as well as divisions for Beginners and Advanced players.  Boys and girls ages 7 to 14 will be given the option of using baseball or softball equipment. 

On June 20, 2015, Major League Baseball and the USCM launched a new Play Ball initiative, that focused on the sport of baseball and encouraged sustained participation in the sport for years to come. Play Ball serves as a platform to connect with those who are currently involved in the game, while also providing alternative ways for those looking to get involved, with a specific focus on youth participation.

Now through August of 2018, with the help of mayors across the country, Play Ball Events will be held with the goal of energizing communities and generating support and love for baseball and softball.

Flamingo Park is located at 1900 NW 122 Terrace.  For more information, please call Tom Joyce at 954-392-2128 or email
