Event will take place May 10

The official start of the West Side Little League’s season is still a month away but the league is looking ahead to West Side Little League Taft Day at the Bakersfield Blaze game on May 10 at Sam Lynn Ballpark.

Ticket prices are $8 for seats on the first base side in the upper reserved. The league will receive 50 percent of proceeds from all full priced tickets sold in advance. The team that sells the most tickets will take the field next to the Blaze players for the National Anthem.

Also, the player that sells the most tickets will throw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch.

The Blaze will be taking on the Visalia Rawhide (an affiliate of the Arizona Diamondbacks) that night. The game begins at 7:15 p.m.

For more information about the night, contact MCandela@BakersfieldBlaze.com or call Mike at (661) 716-4487 extension 204.
