DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Thousands of area fourth and fifth graders took over Fifth Third Field Saturday for the Dayton Dragons MVP Field Day.
The students were all recognized by their teachers through the Dragons MVP Program as having done something extraordinary inside or outside of the classroom this school year.
The Dragons MVP Program gives students the opportunity to meet the 2014 Dayton Dragons and enjoy a day of fun activities at Fifth Third Field.
Students played inflatable games and carnival games. The Dragons also hosted baseball skills stations and autograph sessions. Students were also given complimentary ballpark snacks, a special treat from Bob Evans, and a free team poster.
This is the ninth season for the Dragons MVP Program. More than 850 classrooms and 26,000 students participated during the 2014 season.
Students selected as Dragons MVPs received a customized certificate and complimentary tickets to enjoy a Dragons game at Fifth Third Field with their families. At the game, they received a specially designed Dragons MVP ball cap. MVPs also received tickets to the “MVP Field Day” to be held at the stadium on June 14.
The Dragons MVP program presented by Bob Evans is also made possible courtesy of Sinclair Community College, WDTN-TV and Dayton’s CW Television.
