Canal Park will be the home of the 2016 Eastern League All-Star Game in July, with the Home Run Derby kicking off the festivities. Until then, the Akron RubberDucks are having a home run derby of their own.
Ken Babby, the owner of the RubberDucks, joined the Ray Horner Morning Show to talking about the team and the improved ballpark experience. Babby talked about the mashers in the middle of the Ducks’ lineup, which include top prospects Bradley Zimmer and Clint Frazier. Akron is off to a 5-0 start as they come home.
In addition to the team, the overall experience at Canal Park has stepped up its game, as well. Babby touched on the upcoming promotions, the new food offerings, and the festivities around the home opener, including the addition of “Rubberta,” the new female mascot.
