Attention to all "baseball" fans - Attention to all "Bismarck Larks" fans - Attention to all "sun-seeking-sitting out in the bleachers at Municipal Field" fans

We are slowly approaching warmer weather, with tomorrow's temps possibly reaching the low 40s - I can't even remember when the last day we were that warm out here in Bismarck and Mandan. All I know is, for me,  the first signs that winter MAY be on its way out of here is when I start reading about another season of Bismarck Larks baseball heating up. The Larks provide the best entertainment for the whole family and get ready, they have something planned that is a "FIRST EVER" for their organization and that will be "...hosted once in this decade"

The Bismarck Larks announce the Home Run Challenge and All-Star Game

One of the coolest guys you will ever meet ( and the Bismarck Larks organization have a lot of people like him ) - Marketing Director Isaac Bugarin just released some amazing news -

The Bismarck Larks announce the Home Run Challenge and All-Star Game presented by H.A. Thompson & Sons will take place July 31 and August 1 at Bismarck Municipal Ballpark Home of Dakota Community Bank & Trust. This is the first time the event will be hosted in Bismarck in the team’s season history. “This is an event that Bismarck will host once in this decade,” Larks Owner and CEO John Bollinger said. “We are so excited to bring the best baseball players to Bismarck for a spectacular two-day event. We are going to throw a two-day party featuring entertainment that fans have never seen before in Bismarck.” The Home Run Challenge will take place on Monday, July 31, and features the top home run hitters from the Great Plains Division. It is a nine-inning competition with each player receiving 2 minutes and 30 seconds to hit as many home runs as they can. A dueling pianos show featuring Fun Pianos! will follow the Home Run Challenge. The All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday, August 1, and celebrates the top talent from the Great Plains Division. A postgame firework show for fans in attendance will follow the All-Star Game.

 We are talking about the absolute best, the elite college baseball in the country will be here in Bismarck to showcase their talents - and you and your family hopefully will take advantage of this and be out there basking in the sun.
