Take Me Out to the Ball Game
The weather was not picture perfect but nothing could dampen the fun of a day at the ballpark. The students in the summer program at Saint Catherine Academy and the young adults who are participating on the adult day program at Saint Catherine Center for Special Needs were treated to a BlueFish baseball game at Harbor Yard in Bridgeport. Bob Scinto donated his box so everyone could attend.
“Before we went to the game, we talked about baseball and the BlueFish players with some of the students and young adults,” said Helen Burland, Executive Director. “It helps to share information ahead of time so that everyone gets the most out of the experience.
“This was my first baseball game,” reported Vanessa. “I didn’t understand it at first but I eventually did. I really liked the music that they played.”
“I had a great time,” said Anthony. “It was really exciting when the players from each side got into an argument about the umpires call.”
During the game, the fans from Saint Catherine had a special visitor, the BlueFish mascot, who came and spent some time with them. “It was lot of fun seeing the mascot dancing with us, “said Natalie.
It was a wonderful afternoon and best of all, the BlueFish won!
