East Ridge Night at AT&T Field with the Chattanooga Lookouts was again a fun time for those who attended. Although the Lookouts lost to Huntsville 7-1, many of the East Ridge Parks and Recreation players, coaches and parents went home happy.
East Ridge Parks and Recreation Director Stump Martin said its one his favorite evenings of the year.
“The fun is seeing the kids at AT&T Field enjoying the atmosphere and participating in the contest and events in between innings,” Mr. Martin said. “They meet players have their pictures made with Looie and enjoy a night of professional baseball. I always told my players to watch what each Lookout who played the same position as them does every pitch and learn from that.”
Parks and Recreation employee Shawnna Skiles said that each player sold tickets as a fundraiser for their team. Ms. Skiles said the player that sold the most tickets got to throw out the first pitch at the game.
Kaylin Fuentes, who plays for her father, Vincent Fuentes, on the Storm T-ball team, was the winner in the tickets-selling competition.
The four-year-old displayed a strong arm as she took the mound and delivered the pitch.
