Each year, Catholic Charities of West Michigan invites some members of the media to play a ball game. The big event is called "Let's Go To Bat For Kids".  The CCWM Padres almost always win, but the whole thing is a fundraiser for the child welfare programs of CCWM. Those programs work to help people in the West Michigan community.

The event itself is free and happening on Thursday, June 20 at 5/3 Ballpark in Comstock Park. Cars can park for $7 each and everyone can enjoy the game. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and the opening ceremonies begin an hour later. 

There will be children's games, local mascots, and other fun things to do at the ballpark. You can RSVP for the event here
