LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The Louisville Bats will be hosting their second live virtual musical performance from home plate at their ballpark, Louisville Slugger Field on Sunday, May 31 to help benefit the One Louisville: Covid-19 Response Fund.
The initiative, “Live At Home(Plate)” will treat fans to “live” music from popular cover band Jake & Elwood and The Boys. Jake & Elwood and the Boys is a high energy band that has been playing together for over 25 years…all over the U. S., and even West Virginia. Michael Hamburg is Jake Blues and Brennan Latkovski is Elwood Blues, and together they’re backed 7 of the best musicians around.
The band will perform live at home plate at Louisville Slugger Field from 6 – 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 31. Fans will not be permitted to attend the performance in-person, but instead are encouraged to tune in to the live performance on a live stream from the Bats’ Facebook page. Throughout the performance, fans will have the option to donate directly from their Facebook accounts to benefit One Louisville: COVID-19 Response Fund.
The fundraising initiative seeks to provide an entertainment outlet for fans at home during these difficult times, while also creating the opportunity to chip in for a charitable effort to benefit those in need in the Louisville area.
The second Live At Home(Plate) performance marks the most recent effort by the Bats to help raise funds for those affected by COVID-19. The Bats have also participated in Buddy’s Curbside Pick-Up to benefit local restaurant partners and the “Team Kentucky” campaign with fellow Kentucky-based Minor League teams from Bowling Green and Lexington to benefit respective local charities.
