Canadian rockers the Barenaked Ladies will bring their energetic and entertaining stage show to The Toledo Zoo’s historic Amphitheatre May 14 as part of the Circle K Summer Concert Series.

Tickets are $55, $47.50 and $37.50, and seats are still available. Tickets may be purchased by visiting the Zoo’s website at www.toledozoo.org.

Best known for hit singles such as “One Week” and “If I Had $1000000,” the Barenaked Ladies have been performing together since 1988. The group has won a number of awards, including a Billboard Music Award and several Juno Awards. They have released 11 albums together, the most recent being All in Good Time, released in March 2010.

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. with a special guest, singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson, whose songs have been featured on television programs such as “Scrubs” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” Her most recent album, “Everybody,” reached number 18 on the Billboard charts in 2009.

A complete listing of shows scheduled as part of the Circle K Summer Concert Series at The Toledo Zoo is available at www.toledozoo.org.

 

The bats are getting dusted off and the leather balls kneaded in preparation for the start of Vintage Base Ball season at the Hayes Presidential Center.

The center’s all-volunteer base ball team, the Spiegel Grove Squires play the sport according to 1860s rules. Club members wear reproduction uniforms and use period equipment as they compete and demonstrate what is lovingly referred to as America’s Pastime. The Squires take their name from the beloved estate of 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes, where the club’s home matches also are played. All Squires matches are free and open to the public.

The Spiegel Grove Squire’s 2010 season includes 11 matches with other historic base ball clubs. The schedule includes:

May 16 – 1 p.m., Wintergarden Park in Bowling Green with the Wood County Infirmary Inmates

June 6 – 2 p.m., at home in Spiegel Grove with the Carey Cayugas

June 12-13 – (time to be announced) Ghost Riders Tournament in Harrison Smith Park, Upper Sandusky
