GET RUFF: BARK AT THE BALLPARK

Mr. Furball deserves a day out, doesn't he? Check out the Clearwater Threshers Bark in the Ballpark at Bright House Field Saturday to benefit the Humane Society of Pinellas. The game features dog-related vendors, water stations, splash pools and games on the concourse. Dogs get to run the bases after the game. Gates will open at 5 p.m., with a pet-owner look-alike at 6:15 p.m. There will be no fireworks — don't want to scare the pooches. Also, bring back packs and school supplies to benefit needy area children. $6-$10. Bright House Field, 601 N Old Coachman Road, Clearwater. (727) 467-4457.
