St. Basil's Orthodox Church is a Christian community of people from various ethnic and social backgrounds sharing a common commitment to the Lord, each other, and the Apostolic Faith. We warmly welcome all families, couples, and individuals who are looking for a deeper experience of the salvation offered in Jesus Christ. Come and see!

For all others, the cost is $11 per ticket. Cash or check made out to St. Basil's Church School. Each ticket is for the game, a hot dog, and a soda.
