On May 11, it’s “play ball” at Columbus Commons. The Commons will be the site for legends of the game Reggie Jackson and Wade Boggs to coach some local talent in a competition showcasing strength, accuracy and hitting prowess. The Grand Lawn will be transformed into a skills field, complete with hitting targets and a scoring system. There will be ample spectator viewing throughout the park where kids of all ages can reach out and catch a piece of history.
A free concert will follow this exciting spectacle at the new Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion. X Factor sensation and Columbus fan favorite Josh Krajcik will kick off the concert, followed by the Grammy-nominated band, Tonic.
Visitors can enjoy complimentary tastings provided by PepsiMAX and Taco Bell during the event. The Common’s cafes, Burgers, Dogs and Fries as well as Pizza Shack by Lola (new to the park this year), will have food for sale and Pepsi products and alcoholic beverages will also be available.
Don’t miss this chance to enjoy America’s favorite pastime and great music, all free at the PepsiMAX Field of Dreams event at Columbus Commons.
