The first event to be held in the newly-renovated Madison Mallards Duck Pond at Warner Park will be a high school baseball game between Madison East and Madison LaFollette on Friday, May 27 at 7:05 p.m.
Normally, the Duck Pond is the home field for both schools, but with the ongoing $1.8M ballpark construction project that began in the fall, each school had to relocate to different venues this season.
Admission is free for the seven-inning contest; however, a $4 donation is suggested with half of the proceeds benefiting the Madison Parks Foundation and the other half benefiting the Habitat for Humanity of Dane County.
Proceeds from concessions will be split evenly between the two participating high schools.
The event will provide a sneak peak for baseball fans to check out the Mallard's spectacular new home.
Tickets are available at the Mallards box office or via phone by calling 608.316.DUCK (3825).
