It was all smiles at Ripken Stadium Wednesday as batters tried hit one out of the park to help the homeless.

Homeruns for the Homeless is hosted by the Harford Family House, which provides shelters to homeless families with children.

"It's for a good cause, so I'm really excited. Let's have some fun," Good Morning Maryland meteorologist Lynette Charles said, as she stepped up to the plate to take part.

Each of the batters got 15 swings plus another five with an additional donation. There was also a "Golden Arm" contest where participants only had 20 seconds to make an unlimited number of throws at a target that was 60 feet away.
