September 21: UPRD Twilight Vintage Base Ball & Movie

Veterans Memorial Park- 600 Progress Pkwy, Union, MO 63084
Time: 5:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Price: This is a FREE community event!
"For the Glory of the Game - Huzzah!"
UPRD is proud to bring back a unique sporting event on Saturday, September 21st! Come out to Veterans Memorial Park (VMP) Field 5 (1012 Veterans Memorial Drive) to witness base ball as it was in the 1860's. Two St. Louis vintage baseball teams (Brown Stockings vs Unions) will face-off for a nine-inning game starting at 5 PM.
While very similar, the older rules have important differences from modern baseball. Base ball, as it was called at the time, was a game played by gentlemen, and good manners were expected. Players did not wear gloves, and balls and strikes were generally not called unless the batter (called the striker) appeared to be delaying the game. For 1860 rules, visit http://stlbrownstockings.com/rules.aspx.
Kids will have an opportunity to come onto the field to swing the bats and run the bases after the game. Stick around after the game to see Field of Dreams on the big screen in the outfield starting at 8 PM.
Be sure to bring a cooler and chair/blanket to enjoy both shows! This is a free community event.
UPRD reserves the right to cancel at any time with no advanced notice due to weather, etc.
Both residents and non-residents are welcome. For more information, please visit www.unionmissouri.org/uprd or call 636-583-8471.

4th annual Mike Flamion Hotdogs With Heroes! This organization provides assistance to area first responders injured in the line of duty or who have suffered a catastrophic life event.
How can Midwest Jeepthing help? Glad you asked. ;) We bring as many Jeeps as we can to show our support for local first responders. It’s not about how built or not built your Jeep is. It’s about sending a message to those who serve & protect us that we appreciate them.
Also, in a designated area, we’re going to have a Jeep show with 100% of the proceeds going directly to a first responder(s) in need. There will be voting by the public and Hotdogs with Heroes event leadership, and awards given out, but what it’s really about is raising a lot of money for a great cause. We’ll have an RTI ramp so Jeeps can test out their flex, and those not familiar with Jeeps can enjoy watching and hopefully get hooked on this hobby we all love so much.
Area Jeep clubs are encouraged to attend. Please have your club leadership contact Robert McDonald or Tommy Davis of Midwest Jeepthing for more details. We will be sure to mention all clubs who participate whenever discussing the event, and most certainly in social media posts and public speaking. We are Jeepers as one family supporting our local first responders.
