UCAN Slug Out Violence

Lil’ Sluggers, Hamlin Park and Oz Park join hands to Slug Out Violence in Chicago!


Join your teammates at Lil’ Sluggers, Hamlin Park Baseball and Oz Park Baseball for a HIT-A-THON to fund violence prevention programs for Chicago’s at risk youth. This unique event allows your child to give back to the community, build confidence and HAVE FUN!

Each participating child will have the opportunity to hit ten baseballs in a batting cage (at your regular field) thrown by a Lil’ Sluggers, Hamlin Park Baseball or Oz Park Baseball volunteer coach! Pledge any amount to participate ($25 target suggested), and join your friends at the batting cage to hit baseballs.

Raise $100 and get ten extra baseballs!

DATES AND LOCATIONS HAVE CHANGED: Look for the batting cages with the “UCAN SLUG OUT VIOLENCE” signs; they will be adjacent to your regular game locations and available before or after your games.  Just show your pledge page and step up to the plate for your chance to participate!
