Join your local chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists for an evening out at the Louisville Bats ballpark.

We will offer an all-you-can-eat buffet of yummy ballpark food for our members and friends. Game time is 7:05 p.m., and we'll be in a covered area near Right Field, which offers great views and some shade. This is our summer membership drive event, so we're offering a great benefit for new members: FREE ADMISSION if you join SPJ and join our chapter.

Tickets are $24 each to this event.

If you'd like to join SPJ, dues are $75 annually for professionals or $37.50 for those who are retired, a spouse or partner of a current member (same address) or for those who graduated from college three years ago or less. There are no additional dues to join the local chapter.

Once you join, you'll get access to lots of great information from SPJ national, including communities dedicated to technology, freelancing, online journalism, and discounts to both national and local SPJ events.
