Another great night at Canal Park, thanks to our hosts the Aeros and some terrific company! The Aeros won 6-0 as Matt Packer shut down the Altoona line-up. The big blow for Akron was a Beau Mills 3-run home run. But as always, the game was somewhat secondary to the company for this one.
Our own Jon Steiner throwing out a ceremonial first pitch. Rumor is it bounced in front of home plate. That beeping noise is me backing the bus over Jon.
Another good crowd this year. Somewhere around 30 WFNY writers, readers and friends were on hand. I see Summit Omar, Robbie, Titus, Craig…
And of course Peter from Cleveland Frowns. As well as…
Vince from Cleveland Scene. Both have been to all 3 Aeros game nights. (And by the way Aeros, we are now 3-0 on WFNY night. Just sayin.)
Omar’s been with us since the start as well. He decided to try the ‘Nice to Meat you’ burger. He finished it too. I was impressed.
Forget the first pitch, next year we’re going for Scott vs Pete in the sumo suits!
A WFNY outing first! Foul Ball caught and delivered to a beautiful young fan! (Yep, that’s my daughter!)
Visual proof there was actual baseball being played.
Of course it wouldn’t be the Aeros game get together without Pete doing the YMCA headstand during the 7th inning stretch. On the dugout.
Another great fish-eye shot from Jon Cole. Have I mentioned he’s a stud photographer before?
WFNY Jon. Should have made him do a running diary post from the evening.
Thanks to all who came. You make the evening worth doing! Check out Jon’s work at Envisioned Memories. If you need a photographer, he’s the best.
