The 1st Annual Baseball Explosion was a hit! 

Watch this WCCO news story to learn more about how Team Tucker’s baseball party at Tucker Field brought kids, families, and friends together over his favorite sport this past spring. 

Miss this spring’s Baseball Explosion? Don’t worry…we’ll be back next year! In the meantime, find some skates and join us October 6th for the 2nd Annual Hockey Explosion!


A day full of baseball, fun, prizes, games, food, and friends, Team Tucker’s Baseball Explosion brings together players of all ages to learn and play baseball. Players will compete in throwing accuracy, base running, and power hitting. Kids will play with friends and meet plenty of new friends as they team up and show off their skills.

After the practice and skills competitions, High School players will compete in a Home Run Derby for all to admire as they crush the ball over the little league fence of Tucker Field and into the parking lot.

Families and kids will have plenty to enjoy off the diamond as well. Join us for delicious food, sweet treats, carnival games, face paint, and a visit from a fire truck and fire fighters!


Tucker’s best sport was baseball. Wow, did he have a beautiful swing that sent a line drive over 2nd base. Not only did he love playing it, but he also loved watching everyone else play: older kids, the Saint Paul Saints, the Minnesota Twins, and especially the MLB All Stars at the Home Run Derby. To celebrate baseball season and his favorite sport, Tucker’s mom created Team Tucker’s Baseball Explosion!


The 1st Annual Baseball Explosion is on Sunday, May 20th, 2018.


Join us at Maetzold Park in Hopkins! We will be playing on Tucker Field.
