Float To The Ballpark

I can’t wait for this in August, and I know it’s always one of the most highly anticipated events of the summer in Zoo Town. If you’re lucky you might even see a Mitsui or Cron homer floating in the river…

Float to the Ballpark, one of the most popular promotions in professional baseball, is back for 2014. The Missoula Osprey announced today that in conjunction with Lewis and Clark Trail Adventures, Osprey fans have the opportunity to float to the ballpark Aug. 17.

Floaters will be shuttled from the stadium to waiting rafts that will take them on a guided two and a half hour float back to the stadium along the Clark Fork River, which will begin at 1 p.m. Upon arrival at the stadium, the lucky fans will be fed a BBQ meal with all-you-can-eat hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, salads and sodas. Fans will then take their seats to watch the Osprey take on the Idaho Falls Chukars.

All participants must be at least 5 years of age or older. No flip flops, or personal tubes, rafts or floatation devices will be allowed. The Osprey do advise fans who participate to bring sunscreen and sunglasses, wear comfortable clothes, and keep in mind that their clothes and shoes may get wet during the float.

Fans will need to pre-purchase a package for the float, limited space is available. Packages cost $60 per person. To reserve your spot for yourself, family, or business call 543-3300 or visit the Missoula Osprey Box Office located in the MSO HUB at 140 N. Higgins Ave.
