A Kickball Extravaganza for children and teens was held on Saturday, June 16, organized by Steve Knudsen, vocational counselor at Marin City Community Development Corporation (MCCDC).

Four teams played three games with six players per inning. The final score of the championship game was 18-17, and winners took home the gold, along with gift certificates for frozen yogurt.

Andrew Abou Jaoude of Marin City was field coordinator, umpire and fulltime pitcher.

Marin City Health and Wellness Center gave free blood pressure checks, and student volunteers from the University of the Pacific Dental School in San Francisco provided dental demonstrations.

Wayne Price was the DJ and play-by-play announcer. Tours of the organic garden at the Martin Luther King Junior Academy were also available.
