Second Ever Donkey Softball Game May 11


Dust off those baseball mitts and practice that swing, the second ever St. John Donkey Softball game is set for Saturday, May 11, at the Coral Bay ball field.

Hosted by Dana Bartlett owner of the Carolina Corral with help from the Rotary Club of St. John, the second Donkey Softball game day, starting at 11 a.m. on May 11, will feature fun for the whole family.

Bartlett organized the first ever donkey softball game last year to rave reviews. Team members swing for the fences and then must either ride or walk a donkey around the bases. The game usually takes a few unexpected twists and turns and no one walks away without a smile on their face.

In addition to the one-of-a-kind softball game, the afternoon will feature sack races, tug-of-war and pony rides for the little ones. Food and drinks will also be on sale.

Residents are invited to come on out to the ball field and take in all the action. Or, better yet, sign up for a team or volunteer to help out in the field.

For more information or to register for a team, call Bartlett at (340) 693-5778 or talk to any Rotary Club of St. John member.
