Tennis, Baseball Come Together

york revoFans of the York Revolution baseball team got some extra play earlier this week, when USTA Middle States and Tennis for Kids brought tennis to the ballpark.

Tennis for Kids, a Community Tennis Association that runs tennis programming in York, recruited nearly 80 kids from various programs in the city to attend the Revolution game and take part in a pre-game tennis Play Day. Four courts were set up in the stadium parking lot.

Once the stadium doors opened, the kids had a chance to participate in the Field of Dreams, which allowed them to run onto the field and join one of the Revolution players as they took the field. Hank Merges, the founder of Tennis for Kids, along with junior player Emmy Leader, threw out the first pitch.

USTA Middle States donated 25 racquets, which were provided to 25 raffle winners at the event.
