Jason Estes, the CornBelters “Player for a Day” will make an appearance on the field and in the batting line up at some point during the game. Kids will also enjoy a meet-and-greet with the players and Corny, be able to play at the McDonald’s/Little Jewels Family Fun Zone, complete Belters Brainball education worksheets, have their faces painted by the Zoo Lady, and all kids are invited to run the bases and toilet paper the whole park after the game!

The CornBelters exhibition game will be a preview of this season’s entertainment and the 2012 team.  Due to the overwhelming popularity of this game with area schools, Box Seats are sold out.
