Dodgeball With Hundreds of Your Friends?



    Dodgeball With Hundreds of Your Friends?

    Baseball, football, hockey, basketball and even soccer are all big sports in Philly, but now dodgeball is going to make a huge appearance -- literally.

    An 800-plus-player game of dodgeball is set to take place on Saturday, April 2. All proceeds will benefit the Philadelphia non-profit organization Life Unchained.

    The 12:30 p.m. game will take place at the Wells Fargo Center -- the only venue large enough for the planned 400-on-400 game.

    After the dodgeball game is over, players will be able to attend a post-game party and enjoy drinks and food.

    Participants will also receive an event T-shirt, charity wristband and the option to stay for the 7 p.m. Wings game for free or receive a voucher for the next week's game.

    Ten people on the winning team will be selected by a raffle to win prizes while the last person standing on the losing team will receive a large unnamed reward, according to organizers.

    While the normal registration period is over, the late registration is still available for $40 online -- only 5 bucks more than the normal price.

    Trying to attend the game without the chance of getting pelted by dodgeballs? Spectator tickets are only $20 -- a small fee to pay when watching what is being hailed "the largest dodgeball game ever to take place in Philadelphia."
