A project created in Landmark Education’s self-expression and leadership program by San Diego engineer Steve Austin will allow inner city children and children of soldiers stationed oversees to attend a San Diego Padres baseball game for free.
The project, titled ‘Baseball Blast for Kids’, applies to the game being held on Sunday, September 26th, between the Padres and the Cincinnati Reds. For that day, the Padres foundation is allowing the purchase of a ticket and a meal at half price for a child ($10.50 per person).
To raise donations and arrange for kids to be able to attend the game, Austin is partnering with the Jackie Robinson YMCA and people from the Vista Grande Community Church Menâ€™s Fellowship in Tierrasanta. Austin and these groups are striving to allow children from Murphy Canyon Military Housing and Lincoln Park to attend the game.
“Everybody I know has great memories of the first professional baseball game they attended as a kid,” said Austin. “‘Baseball Blast for Kids’ will give that thrill to a lot of children who might not get the opportunity otherwise.”
