Labor Day Sports


Going into Labor Day, so many think of it as the last breath of summer, well regardless of how you look at the weekend there are plenty of good summer sports opportunities around town that should provide you with a proper way to send off the season.
                                                                                                             These start with the BMX Eastern Division Finals, which will run at Tom Sawyer park from Today through to Sunday. BMX Racing has always had a close relationship with the Derby City, and this is a highly prestigious event in the BMX community, what this means is that this is set to be a lot of fun for everybody that comes out to it.
                                                                                                            Meanwhile, the Bats are set to close out their regular season in a home stand at Slugger Park against Indianapolis on Sunday and Monday, Sunday the game is set for a start time at 6:05, while Sunday’s game will open at 1:05.
