What’s more American than baseball and hot dogs? How about baseball, hot dogs and 4-H? Michigan State University Extension 4-H Youth Development in partnership with the Lansing Lugnuts will present 4-H Science Day at the Lugnuts July 15. The game begins at 2:05 p.m. with doors opening around noon. The Lugnuts will take on the Cedar Rapids Kernels.
It’s a great opportunity to get kids excited about science and to see how science relates to everyday life – even the fun parts! Science activities will line the concourse for kids to get involved with hands-on experiments before and during the game. Kids will get the opportunity to see the relationship between science and sports, science and the baseball field turf and science and the ballpark menu.
I’m told I may lead the seventh inning stretch. I’ve not been told if that’s a tai chi exercise routine or if it involves singing “ah one, and ah two, and ah three…” Or if it involves a pillow fight with the Big Lug.
Look for more details to come.
