A home run derby is scheduled for 4 pm.
The game begins at 5 pm.
Additional details about the game are available at a website set up for the game: www.jarvislandrysoftball.com.
The website describes the game as follows:
“Approaching the 2nd year, the Jarvis Landry softball game is continuously recognized by over 6000 spectators as a highly anticipated family event.

This will be a day filled with a plethora of entertainment, excitement, rivalry, philanthropy and much more!”
