2021 "Batter Up" Team Captain Walk Challenge
Are you ready for some baseball?
Announcing the 2021 Batter-Up Team Captain Walk Challenge where you could earn an awesome baseball t-shirt, shown in the image below. BONUS: The shirt will have the team names of all the home run hitting team captains for the entire state of Ohio!
So get out your Big League chew, tie your shoes tight and get ready to run the bases to knock ALZ out of the park! Challenge begins Monday, May 24, and runs through Friday, June 25. Already started your team? Then you have been walked and on first base! Great job! .
Here’s how it works:
To earn your special edition team captain baseball tee, you need to work your way around the infield. You will need to complete specific challenges to advance around the bases.
Let’s hit the field! The challenge runs until June 25, 2021. Once you've completed all challenges and made your way to home plate, you've earned your shirt (nice job MVP).
