Erie Tail-Great by Alex Bieler

Both baseball – America’s pastime – and helping others – not necessarily America’s pastime, but still pretty important – are both pretty swell things, but when you combine them, you get something that’s pretty awesome. In fact, you could say that it’s Tail-Great.

The Ninth Annual Tail-Great takes place Saturday, Aug. 9, allowing people to partake in beer, baseball, and great causes. From 4 to 7 p.m., Tail-Greaters can enjoy a, well, tailgate party with food, refreshments, and friends at the Neighborhood Art House right by Jerry Uht Park. Following the pre-game gathering, you’ll be granted entry to the Erie SeaWolves game against the New Britain RockCats, the Double-A affiliate of the Minnesota Twins.

In addition to enjoying the aforementioned tailgating and baseball-viewing privileges, you’ll be able to feel good about the fact that the proceeds from Tail-Great go to help four different organizations:  MECA Inc.’s Adaptive Baseball program; The Neighborhood Art House; Emmaus Ministries’ Kid’s Café; and Side Project Inc. 

Tickets for Tail-Great can be purchased online at tail-great.com, providing you, and various benefactors, a night of baseball with benefits. – Alex Bieler
