It was Saturday, April 20 and the boys were at the Tin Caps game for school night. I was at our church resale. I got a text and a friend we know via Kate's Kart offered us 4 free tickets to the Tin Caps game on Sunday...AND a chance for one of the boys to throw out the first pitch. How could we refuse that.
So..after a few phone calls...all the grandparents were coming and we had 8 tickets. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and Seth and Andy went down to the field. Right before the game...3 kids got to throw a pitch. 1st a b-day boy, then a player from some b-ball team...and then they announced Seth's name as being with The Garrison Group, the charity of the day (that was who invited us, and just happens to be the group that does the 5K for Kate's Kart).
It went fast...but I'm sure for an 8 year old, it was a great experience. Grant seemed oblivious to the whole thing, until Seth came back with the b-ball he threw. So...a quick trip to the gift shop and some Cotton candy and he was good to go!
Due to some other church choir commitments of Seth that night...we had to leave the game early. It was actually a nice afternoon for a game.
Again...another awesome opportunity...that lucky kid!
