Take Batting Practice, Feast With Ira Kaufman

July 3rd, 2019

“The Sage,” Ira Kaufman, will channel his days of stickball stardom.

The Fourth of July might never be the same.

Tomorrow, from 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., Tampa’s only Pro Football Hall of Fame voter, JoeBucsFan.com columnist Ira Kaufman, will take batting practice at Steinbrenner Field before the Tampa Tarpons game (Yankees’ A-ball affiliate).

And you can join him!

Fans who purchase Spectrum Dugout Club tickets for the July 4th game will get their shot to take batting practice in the same time slot. Those club tickets are $42.00 and include a Tarpons hat, a lower reserved seat and access to an air-conditioned club featuring a buffet with appetizers, entrees, ballpark food and desserts.

Food and beverage begin when the gates open and are served through the bottom of the 7th inning. Call 813-673-3030.

A spectacular fireworks show follows the game, and there are more Independence Day festivities planned. General game tickets start at just $5.00. All the details are at the Tarpons’ official website.
