The Annual Gold Star Family Day at the Ball Park

Since 2016, Louisville Slugger Field has been the site of the Gold Star Family Day at the Ball Park. This is a unique program developed by the Woody Williams Foundation, which hosts over 200 Gold Star Family members for a day of baseball, food, community, and fun. Families will enjoy the Louisville Bats baseball experience along with a catered lunch, as well as special activities for children in attendance.

As a part of this special day Gold Star Family members will be throwing out the first pitch as well as singing our National Anthem. In addition to these activities, Louisville Bats baseball will give special recognition to these families in honor of their Loved Ones throughout the day.

Gold Star Family Day at the Ball Park offers a unique opportunity to strengthen relationships within the community and demonstrate to Gold Star Families that Louisville will never forget the sacrifice of their Loved One.

If you are a Gold Star Family and are interested in attending, please contact the Woody Williams Foundation at or call (888) 839.7190.
