1st Pitchers strike at CYC Night at Busch Stadium
CYC Night at the Cardinals game on Thursday, June 14th was a success all the way around. Starting with the on field batting practice visits by Colin and Jordan Beveridge from St. Joseph-Manchester and Henry and Jack Boland from St. Monica. Followed by the Parade around the field by all parishes in attendance. Then the 2 CYC First Pitchers, Nathan Duchinsky from St. Paul and Megan Gilmore from Sts. Joachim and Ann. Finally the Cardinals beat the White Sox 5-3 in the main event. Home town hero David Freeze had a good night with a double and home run for 3 RBIs.
Megan had her sign carrying teammates cheering her on as she hummed a strike to Joe Kelly, the Cardinals new starting pitcher just called last Sunday. Then Nathan made a splash with his high hard one that had photographers and spectators scattering. That is one 1st pitch to be remembered!
A good night for all involved. To view a photo gallery of pictures from the night, click here.
