HomeAid Northern Virginia hosted their fifth annual “Night at the Ballpark” last week.

The organization partnered with businesses and other community organizations to send more than 300 homeless children to a Potomac Nationals game at Pfitzner stadium on August 14.

According to a release, many of the children had never had an opportunity to go to a baseball game previously.

During the event, the children got to run the bases on the field, meet the team’s mascot and even got signed autographs from the players, stated a release. They also received a new backpack for the school year.
