Toyota Field- July/August Happenings

MADISON- Toyota Field will be engaged with numerous special events during what is normally the hottest days of the summer in North Alabama. The home of the Rocket City Trash Pandas will flourish with a bevy of happenings for the weeks during July and August.

The second Rocket City Baseball Classic featuring summer travel teams from throughout the Tennessee Valley will take to the green grass of the playing field inside Toyota Field July 22-26. Event details are available on the Trash Pandas’ website.

The Sandlot, a 1993 motion picture centered round a group of young baseball players during the summer of 1962, will highlight the Friday, July 24 “On-Field Move Night.” General admission tickets are $10 with children age 12 and under just $8.

The two-day Jay Bell Baseball Camp is set for Wednesday and Thursday, July 29-30. For ages 7-15, the camp will be held 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. each day with a camp fee of $200 per camper. A coaching staff headed up by Trash Pandas’ manager Jay Bell will hit on all aspects of the game with the goal of teaching each camper more than they knew when they arrived. Each camper is required to bring their own equipment. Details on the camp is openly available on the website of the Trash Pandas.

“Barks and Brews” will be on tap for Friday, July 31 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. The no-admission event will be pet friendly with food and beverages available at designated concession stands.

Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 1-2 will bring a little bit of Trash Pandas minor league baseball to Toyota Field with the “Jersey Experience.” Fans will receive an authentic on-field jersey that would have been worn by the players. Plus, participants can hit batting practice on the field, eat a post-practice meal in the SportsMED Stadium Club and more. Cost for the special event is $250 and deadline to register is July 29. Contact Gayle Milam at gmilam@trashpandasbaseball.com to reserve a spot for what is expected to be a hot item.

The “Back To School Bash” is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 7. Admission is $5 and attendees are encouraged to bring donations for a school supply drive. Food and beverages will be available as the Trash Pandas celebrate the end of summer and return to school.

Christian contemporary artists Crowder and Tauren Wells will perform their “Night of Hope” concert Saturday, Aug. 8 beginning at 6:30 p.m. Tickets begin at $15. Social distancing will be enforced as attendees can sit on the field, in the seating bowl and in the SportsMED Stadium Club.
