Mrs. North Carolina International and The Rainy Intimidators Game

On April 8th my sister Queens and I were invited to attend the Season-Opening Kannapolis Intimidators Minor League Baseball game and have the opportunity to throw the first pitch!  It was a beautiful spring RAINY day and unfortunately our plans did not work out the way we had hoped they would.

When I arrived it was pouring!

          Greg Pizzuto, who is Director of Group Sales, the girls and I were able to take photos during a rain fall stop.  It was for a short period of time though, and then we had to take cover quickly. Greg mentionaed the tarp would need to be removed a 1/2 hour before the game could start.  Now due to a time constraint there would be no first pitches.  

I enjoyed mingling with the crowd and getting down to a child's level to connect with the dissapointed, but adorable faces. 


Greg was very kind to give me an open-door invitation of coming to enjoy any of their upcoming games, and my son Andrew is invited to sing the National Anthem.
