The 5th Annual Gold Star Family Day at the Ball Park

5th Annual Gold Star Family Day at the Ballpark signageWoody Williams Foundation and Louisville Bats Baseball will host the 5th 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.

This year, the Woody Williams Foundation is honored to add a new feature to the event: a 1:1 scale replica of the Gold Star Families Memorial Monument. This traveling monument will be on display in honor of Gold Star Families and their Loved Ones at Louisville Slugger Field for the entire weekend.

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.
