Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium is hosting the Sun Belt College Baseball League for a showcase game on Tuesday, July 4, with fireworks following the game.
Gates open at 6:00 pm with pregame ceremonies starting at 7:00 pm and the first pitch scheduled for 7:30.
Kino has partnered with the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona to collect donations in place of tickets. Anyone who wishes to attend the event can gain entry with the donation of one nonperishable food item or a $1 donation. The Community Food Bank will be collecting donations at the stadium entrances.
Once inside the stadium, there will be free July Fourth-themed giveaway items while supplies last. Throughout the evening, there will be games set up along the concourse with prizes and inflatables for kids to play on. The concession stands will feature $1 hot dogs and drink specials.
This year is the 25th anniversary of Kino stadium and the July Fourth event is serving as the kickoff for a yearlong recognition of the facility and what it brings to Pima County.
