Over 8,000 fans packed Shorebirds Stadium on Saturday, August 13th for Mountaire Family Night once again making it one of the largest crowds of the year for the hometown Delmarva Shorebirds baseball team. The evening featured the 2nd Annual Mountaire Softball Challenge and a post-game fireworks spectacular.

Festivities began at 5pm when members of the Mountaire Selbyville Softball Team took the field against the Mountaire Millsboro Softball Team. In 2010 Selbyville won a close game by a score of 5-4, this year however the game was never in question. Team Selbyville scored early and often winning the game 16-0. Great sportsmanship was shown by all as members of both sides had an awesome time playing together on a professional diamond.

Third baseman Tyler Kelly received the Mountaire Outstanding Player Award. The South Atlantic League All-Star is hitting .293 with 39 RBI and 58 Runs scored this season. Pitcher Cam Roth received the Mountaire Community Player Award for his volunteer work in the Delmarva Community this season. To date Roth has made several appearances at local little leagues and is always eager to sign for fans before and after games.
During the game the Shorebirds announced two additions to the Mountaire Walk of Fame along the stadium concourse. Banners for Baltimore Oriole Starter Zach Britton and New York Mets Reliever Pedro Beato were unveiled as the newest members of the Walk of Fame. Both pitched for the Shorebirds and have gone on to begin successful careers in the Major Leagues.
