Cape Girardeau is hosting a few schoolyard sporting events for adults in August.

The first is a home run derby.

For an entry fee, men and women can take a few swings to ‘knock it out of the park.’

There is one women’s division and there are three different men divisions.

Prizes will be awarded to the winners.

The Home Run Derby will be held at the Shawnee Sports Complex on Friday, Aug. 16.

The second is an adult kickball tournament.

It’s a new event the Parks and Recreation Department is hosting on Aug. 25.

For a fee of $100 per team, you and a few friends can prove your kickball skills on the field.

The top four teams will get a prize.

Registration is now open and teams must sign up by Aug. 20. CLICK HERE to register.

Staff with Parks and Recreation says these events are aimed at giving people something to do outside of their day-to-day lives.
