INDIANAPOLIS– It’s time to take a brief moment and reflect on my first baseball experience in 2010, a visit to Victory Field, home of the Indianapolis Indians.
All the weather forecasts pointed to a rainout–dangerous storms, even hail were in the forecast Saturday night.
I was awakened by those storms Sunday morning as they finally did roll through downtown Indianapolis.
The forecast for those storms didn’t keep 13 attendees at the 2010 Ted Scripps Leadership Institute and I from experiencing one of the many Indianapolis attractions. The end result was a great night, a newfound love for minor league baseball.
We saw some crazy mascots and even were visited by the main Indians’ mascot, Rowdie. Two of my colleagues from Salt Lake City even won some prizes in the process.
While I will be taking away a lot of leadership lessons from this weekend, one of my biggest memories (aside from the visit to Indianapolis’ duckpin bowling lanes in Fountain Square, will be seeing my first Indianapolis Indians game.
