South Bend Silver Hawks host holiday event


The weather outside looks like anything but baseball season, but that didn't stop a South Bend team from opening the gates Saturday.

Four Winds field at Covelski Stadium looked a little different as the Silver Hawks hosted a free holiday event.

There were horse-drawn carriage rides through the outfield.

The Will Ferrell movie "Elf" was playing on the jumbotron, and Santa was making the team's merchandise shop into his workshop.

Officials with the team say it's their way of giving back to the community.

"Well we like to kind of share the field as much as possible with the community. It's their place, and it's kind of just a way to get everyone involved when there's not a game going on... kind of come out and spend a little bit of holiday time out here," says Director of Marketing and Promotions, Kelly Knutson.

Saturday's event also had visitors decorating ornaments and visiting with animals from the Potawatomi zoo.
