Game Day Update


October 10, 9:30 AM:  We’re postponing our  Halloween Party to THURSDAY, 10/12, 6 PM.  Shouldn’t be a big surprise!  The weather is awful today.   See you all Thursday night–wear your best Halloween costumes!  Trick or treat for all and fun games, too.  Concession stand will be open for your favorite ball park eats.

September 30:  Couldn’t ask for nicer weather to play ball.  WHO-radio is broadcasting live!  Come on Down!

September 23:  Many are calling as to whether we are playing or not.   Yes, we are playing.  The 9 AM game is in full swing.  We have cold water and cold towels for the players in the dugouts.  Might want to bring your umbrellas for shade in the stands.

September 18:  We host the Ankeny Miracle League players at our ball park for 2 games–6 & 7 PM.  The girls softball team from SE Polk HS will be our buddies.  Must register with Joyce at

September 7:  Annual DMPD & DMFD ALL STAR Night.  Games at 6 & 7.

July 15:  Journey of Hope night

June 24:  Last day of the spring season.  Dairy Queen Day.  Pictures delivered.

June 17:  Hope to play games as scheduled throughout the day.  Picture day, too.

June 10th:  We cancelled our 1, 2, 3, and 4 PM games due to the heat forecast.   Darn.  Knowing that your player may still want to play, please bring them in the morning when it hopefully will be cooler.  If you are scheduled for the 1 PM game, please come to the 9 AM game.  If scheduled for the 2 PM game, please come to the 10 AM game,   If scheduled for the 3 PM game, please come to the 11 AM game.  If scheduled for the 4 PM game, your game is cancelled.
JUNE 3rd:   It was a great day for baseball.  Lots of sunshine, lots of players and lots of buddies.  Some morning traffic snafus due to the Dam to Dam race, otherwise smooth sailing!   We welcomed many buddy groups:  Dallas Center-Grimes Key Club, the Iowa Barnstormer Storm Chasers & U of I Hawkeye dance team, North Mahaska Little League Heat team, Dowling Catholic HS soph boys baseball team, Wells Fargo Retail Services, Midwest Professional Staffing, Atlantic church youth group, the Central Iowa Stars, and, of course, our 2016 Buddy of the Year Cliff.  Special from the concession stand–ice cream shakes in the afternoon!  Very refreshing on a hot day!

And check out the merchandise table for Memorial Day specials!

Don’t forget that Saturday is another Downtown Des Moines Farmer’s Market day.  Avoid 2nd/3rd and 5th Streets.  This affects travel for the 9, 10, 11, and noon games.  Use MLK Parkway.


Second Annual ALL STAR GAMES were May 22nd at Ankeny Miracle League ball park. Another fun event for a lot of special players.


Sorry we had to cancel our May 20th games and picture day. Mother Nature just didn’t want to cooperate!  Pictures rescheduled for June 10.



What great fun with The Iowa Barnstormers at our May 18 All Star Game night!  Some 60 players enjoyed two games with 30+ Barnstormers and coaches.  Special thanks to PapaJohn’s Pizza–free pizza went to all players and Barnstormers!  



Posted 9/16/16:  Weather was great for our Ankeny Miracle League invitational games.  And forecast for 9/17 looks perfect!

Our 2016 season has officially started!  And thanks to Vision Financial Group who presented us with a BIG check on the first day of Fall Season.  We were one of the beneficiaries of the Group’s June golf tournament.  THANKS to all the Vision folks!


Great walking tacos!
