Phillies Host Drive-Thru Play Ball Event

In an ongoing effort to further bridge tangible connections between baseball and the Black community, Major League Baseball is hosted a special drive-thru PLAY BALL event on Saturday, October 24th at St. Matthew African Methodist Episcopal Church in West Philadelphia. The socially-distanced occasion is part of a community event series that MLB will co-host with Black Churches throughout the country, providing families and children with bat & ball sets that they can safely enjoy at home and various parts of their neighborhoods, such as parks and playgrounds.
