Play Ball!

By: Halle Mackert, YC Intern

On June 22nd, the YC gang spent the day playing and watching baseball. We started at French Creek Metro Park where we grilled out and had a picnic. Hot dogs were involved of course!

We then split into teams, boys vs. girls, and played some baseball. YC baseball is adapted to make it more fun for all participants, so buckets are placed at the bases, and to get the runner out, the baseman needs to toss the ball into the bucket. The game got pretty exciting; a few players even hit a homerun!

The gang went from players to spectators when we headed over to Sprenger Stadium to watch the Lake Erie Crushers take on the Washington Wild Things. The YC participants and volunteers were by far the most enthusiastic and loudest fans in the stadium. We started cheers and yelled, “Here we go Crushers, here we go!” We even started the wave. During the 7th inning stretch, the group could be heard from miles away singing, “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” We had a WOOOO-onderful time!
