"Wanna Play?" at Family Fun Day in Houston, TX

April 17, 2012

This past weekend BaAM traveled to Houston, TX with MLB's "Wanna Play" program as part of Family Fun Day held at Houston Astros MLB Urban Youth Academy at Sylvester Turner Park.  The event featured musical performances, lots of food, and baseball activities focused on different aspects of the sport and was created as a way to encourage families to visit the park, strengthen the community and celebrate the game of baseball together.  

As Project Manager for the event, BaAM did all advance prep including site planning and graphic design. BaAM team members then supervised the setup of baseball interactive activities, including Center Field a mini-diamond attraction, Batting Practice, Steal Home Challenge, and Pitching Cages.  Last year's Family Fun Day drew approximately 11,000 people to the park, this year's event was reported to have broken that record with more than 15,000 in attendance.
