Admission is free to go watch the Brock Badgers varsity squad take on the Ontario Blue Jays, a team that features up-and-coming elite talent.

The kid-friendly event will be complete with a family zone, free face painting, as well as a fundraising barbecue for Brock's baseball program.

The first 100 kids through the gate will also get a free badgers baseball cap.

The game is at George Taylor Field in St. Catharines with the first pitch set for 1 p.m.

Brock Baseball head coach Marc LePage says the event is a great time for the whole family and that the players love interacting with fans.
