With the Nationals opening their new season today against the Florida Marlins, we just want to remind you to come out this summer to support our local Alexandria Aces baseball team which begins play Friday, June 5 against the Rockville Express. The Aces play at Frank Mann Stadium located @ 3798 Commonwealth Ave in Alexandria from early June to August (where historically the minor league Alexandria Dukes also played). They are part of the Cal Ripken, Sr. Collegiate Baseball League (CBL). The Aces offer highly competitive games at an affordable price with most tickets priced at $5 for adults and $3 for kids.
Their inaugural season last year brought with it some dramatic improvements. With their return this year, they are looking for community support to continue. The Aces are looking for host families for their players.
If you have an extra room to spare in your place with access to a washer/dryer, consider hosting one of the Aces players. Has anyone forgotten that some of the Alexandria Duke’s former players include Bobby Bonilla and Joe Orsulak? You would be helping out the team and the community because without community support, the team could not exist. You could also be helping out a future Major League star.
Hope to see you at the ballpark!
