Three weeks ago, Ogden Pub Runners had the opportunity to see the Ogden Raptors play the Helena Brewers in an exciting game that ended with the Raptors striking out a Brewer’s batter with the bases loaded preventing a tie. The Raptors won the game with that play!
Not only did we get to attend the game, but we got to finish our weekly run on the field prior to the start of the game, while the players were warming up. Hearing our little group being announced over the loud speaker was pretty awesome, but watching our member’s spouses, friends and kids run along side them towards home plate was even better.
In addition to organizing this awesome family event, Toni (who we can thank for the organization of all of our events) arranged to have two of our OPR leaders throw out the first pitch at the game. One seemed to be practicing his pitching skills more than the other. 😉
The one who didn’t seem to be practicing may have had a little trouble getting the ball to the pitcher. But hey, running around the field is one thing, we never did claim to be baseball players.
Our second pitcher redeemed us.
Great job guys!
Thank you to all who came for a fun night out! We had quite the turnout and loved seeing all of your kids and family members. Huge thanks, again, to Toni for organizing such a fantastic time.
Watch for more Special Events in the future!
