2014 Rounds at The Grounds – Baseball for Babies

The fifth annual Rounds at the Grounds: Baseball for Babies game returned August 21, pitting local celebrities and doctors in a fierce competition. The players made “rounds” at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville to support healthy babies in preparation for National Infant Mortality Awareness Month.

The Red and Blue teams went to bat, with the Red Team coming out victorious. Afterwards, the All Stars, doctors, staff and families enjoyed the Jacksonville Suns game against the Pensacola Blue Wahoos. Regions Bank donated a green beach cruiser, which was raffled off during the game. Congratulations to the winner, Shelly Crawford!

Thank you to our generous sponsors and donors; players; the Jacksonville Suns; volunteers and everyone who came out to enjoy the game!
