Fine night for baseball in Vegas

Posted on Jun 25, 2012 in Alumni News and News

 

Sure, it was hot. But 25 KU alumni and friends—and 10 K-State alumni who were invited—still enjoyed the Las Vegas 51s AAA baseball game Saturday night at Cashman Field.

Chris Bargiel, boyfriend of Angela Mai, g’08, threw out one of the ceremonial first pitches on behalf of KU. Sort of.

“Two little kids threw out pitches before Chris did, and I’d have to say they threw better strikes than Chris,” says Dee Clifford, c’71, the Las Vegas Chapter leader. “Chris’ bounced a little before the plate, but he shrugged it off.”

A nice buffet down the third-base line no doubt consoled Bargiel and the rest of the KU contingent. A 7-2 Las Vegas win over Sacramento didn’t hurt, either.
