Street Whiffleball in Greenwood

I found out about this event from our sports partner school, St. Catherine’s.  This is a great opportunity to meet some families that your child may be playing soccer with next month!

Greenwood Ave N is going to be closed to motor vehicle traffic between N 65th and N 87th Streets tomorrow, August 13th, from 6-9 PM as part of Seattle’s “Celebrate Summer Streets” program, with support from the Greenwood/Phinney Chamber of Commerce:

What better way to celebrate the opening of so much urban space than by playing ball in the street?! To that end, St. Catherine’s CYO will be playing whiffle ball starting at 6:00 PM near the intersection of N 72nd St & Greenwood Ave N, between longtime youth baseball sponsors Ken’s Market and Greenwood Hardware. If enough players show up, as they did last year, we can split into two games, one for younger players and one for older players.

You are encouraged to arrive by walking or bicycling if possible. Also, bring cloth shopping bags, as this event will be held adjacent to several locally owned businesses in case you want to get a little shopping done while the games are going on.
