Annually, Ocean Edge collaborates with the Cape Cod Baseball League’s Brewster Whitecaps for one game every season, and to show their love for Latham Centers, invites a Latham Resident to throw the first pitch. Traditionally, this resident has been a student from campus, but this year they invited one of the adult residents, Justin C.
When Justin was presented with this opportunity he jumped up and down with glee. His mother even commented, “Justin called to tell me and he was so excited!” Throwing the first pitch is a once-in-a-life-time opportunity, and as a life-time baseball fan Justin was the perfect candidate. Imagine how amazing it would be to feel the eyes of the stadium watching you as you start the game, and to hear the cheers of the crowd as your pitch hits the catcher’s glove. Justin has to imagine this feeling no longer!
We thank Ocean Edge and the Brewster Whitecaps for being such strong community partners. Because of local businesses and organizations like these, Latham Centers has more opportunities to participate and become fully integrated in the Brewster Community.
