The “Play Ball” festivities are scheduled for the King Greenleaf Recreation Center at 201 N St. SW Saturday, according to the D.C. Department of Parks and Recreation, which is hosting the event with the mayor’s office. The day will include baseball and softball drills, Nationals ticket giveaways, food and possibly a dunk tank.

DPR is trying to find someone to go in the dunk tank, said Jennifer Moore, an agency director. But if it doesn’t locate a person in advance of the event, the dunk tank won’t happen, she said.

The mayor is unlikely to come to DPR’s aid, however.

“I doubt she will volunteer for that,” said Seth Shapiro, a Ward 6 liaison for Bowser.

The activities, which are set to run from noon to 4 p.m., are intended for children who are 4 to 14 years old.
