The 2017 “Swinging for the Stars” will be held prior to the Kansas Stars game at Lawrence-Dumont Stadium on Monday, July 31. Swinging for the Stars will be a fun event for all and is a great way to support the Wichita Children’s Home!
So how does it work? Former Washington Nationals first baseman Adam LaRoche will get five pitches thrown by former Detroit Tigers pitcher and Wichita Winguts owner Nate Robertson to hit the ball as far as he can. You can make a pledge per foot or give a flat monetary donation. Your pledge per foot is the farthest distance in feet that LaRoche hits the ball from home plate multiplied by how many cents or dollars per foot that you pledged. For example, if you pledge 10 cents per foot and the farthest hit is 400 feet, you would contribute $40.
