Blue Ridge Spring Dinger
The Blue Ridge Spring Dinger will be a new event in 2019. The idea is we will use fields that are normally used for youth events. We will have mounds and 60’/90′ artificial infields and 320′ outfield fences. It is a mid-week event that will be played Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday in early April. The idea is to give the 60+ players from up north a place to shake off the rust before they begin their own league. But with the shortened fences, a homerun could be a possibility.
The event will be held at Bob Lewis Park, located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in beautiful Candler, NC. It is very close to Asheville, which has a wonderful downtown designed for pedestrians. It is also very close to the one and only Biltmore Estates, which may be the closest thing we have to a castle on American soil. We may be able to swing an Asheville Tourists game, if they playing yet and are in town.
We will offer a practice field on Monday, April 8 for a $25 fee. There are only so many spots, so we will be accepting them on a first come, first serve basis. Please contact us directly by email or at 330-923-3400.
