Y Night at the ballpark will get wet, wild
The Waynesboro Family YMCA and the Staunton-Augusta Family YMCA are teaming up with Coventry/Southern Health to bring us Y Night Friday night, July 20, as the Generals host their rivals, the Staunton Braves, at 7 p.m. at Mathers Park at Kate Collins Field.
The highlight of Y Night will be the waterslide set up down the hill behind the first-base dugout stretching all the way down to a set of safety hay bales backing up against the fence behind the visiting-team bullpen.
“It will be a heckuva ride down,” said Jeff Fife, the executive director of the Waynesboro Family YMCA.
The Waynesboro Y will be providing lifeguards for the waterslide.
“All you need to do is bring your swimsuits to join in the fun,” Fife said.
The Waynesboro Y will also have thundersticks for the first 125 kids to stop by the Y booth set up on the premises.
Free admission tickets are available at both YMCAs.
