I was so bummed I missed the 95.9 The River Night at the Kane County Cougars earlier this month. I heard Nick was invited to throw out the 1st Pitch. The tradition of the ceremonial first pitch was a lot different back in the day. They used to throw the ball from their seat in the grandstand, not the pitchers mound. I am not sure how they select who gets to throw out the first pitch but I am glad that they invited Peter from the Cougars Happy 100th Birthday Video.
Walking from Home Plate to the Pitchers Mound turned out to be a bit of a challenge. Thankfully Emmet from the Cougars is a world class host and was happy to help escort Peter to the field. Peter loves baseball and this made his century!
