Here is a pretty cool opportunity to play wiffle ball at the third-oldest ballpark still in regular use for professional baseball. Yes, I'm talking about Bosse Field.

Strike Out Homelessness

Aurora and ECHO Housing celebrate their partnership, and their shared history, as they work in pursuit of their ultimate vision: a community where every man, woman, and child has a safe, decent, and sustainable place to call home.
Team crowdfunding opportunities will not only raise more money for ECHO Housing and Aurora, but you can also win prizes for the most money raised!

The Major and Minor Leagues of Wiffleball

There are some folks that get together on a regular basis to play wiffleball, and that's great. This might also give them a certain advantage when partnered with teams that are just helping to raise funds and have a good time.

In an effort to keep the competition more evenly matched and to ensure that everyone has the best time possible, this year's tournament will be divided into two leagues - Major and Minor.

Teams that are really good and really competitive and take things really seriously should sign up for the Major League. Teams that consider themselves a bit more recreational and are just out there to have a good time and help a couple of great causes should sign up for the Minor Leagues. Don't worry, there will be trophies for the winners of both leagues.

Check out this cool recap video from last year's event.
