As you’ve noticed, this event is held on a baseball field.  This field is played on regularly by Belmont University students, kids of all ages, and is used even for World Championship little leagues matches.  Without being able to 100% control any leftover mess by all attendees, leaving the risk that a student will slip on or fall into that “mess”, we are not able to have our guests bring their dogs or other pets that might soil the grounds.  Outside the field, while still on the Old Timers Baseball Complex grounds, we have to protect our event from liabilities associated with accidents that can occur between pets, pet owners, and other guests.
