A Home Run: Family Baseball Outing
At the close of August, families and members of Metro's Men's Ministry (M3) and Metro's Softball Team were given the opportunity to enjoy a beautiful Sunday afternoon of baseball, food, and fellowship at Palisades Credit Union Park - home to the Rockland Boulders, a baseball team from the Canadian American Association of Professional Baseball (Can-Am League).
Those who attended enjoyed the Boulders’ exciting 8-2 win over the Quebec Capitales with great seats behind home plate, while snacking on hot dogs, chips, and drinks. Kids were not left out of the fun either - a cute train lapped around the stadium, a busy mini-golf course and playground occupied the area adjacent to right-field, and the mascot, Boulder Bird, walked around pumping up the crowd.
It was an amazing time for all ages, with the proceeds from the event going towards the medical expenses of a family at Metro. Many thanks to James Lee, of the Metro Leadership Team, for setting this event up.
We hope more people can join us for games next season, but if you're interested in attending events like these in the future, be sure to be on the lookout for more announcements from M3!
