Ballplayers reunion at Redan Park

7/25/2014, 6 a.m.

Former Redan Park ballplayers and their families are returning to the Lithonia park for a reunion on July 27.

The reunion for the 1998-2006 Redan Cardinals and Yankees begins at 1:30 p.m.

Stephanie Y. Rockmore, president of Blessings on Wheels, said participants will pose for group photographs and reconnect, reminisce, play board games, and listen to old and new school music.

A softball game begins at 5 p.m.

“This will be an awesome reunion for not only the boys but all the parents,” she said. “We feel the community needs to know what impact this park has been to our boys and this community.”

Participants should bring lawn chairs, tents, coolers, card tables, bug spray, sunscreen and a first-aid kit. Families are asked to bring a case of drinks, a gallon of water and a bag of ice. No alcoholic beverages or weapons will be allowed.

Armbands will be pre-packaged for each family and will include meal tickets.

Redan Park is at 1745 Phillips Road. For more information, call 770-883-0131.
