Breaking Barriers Today Outing!

On a warm, sunny day the participants of Helping Hands Respite Care’s youth and young adult activity program, Breaking Barriers Today, experienced the excitement of going to a professional baseball game.

You might remember these old baseball lyrics:

Take me out to the ball game. Take me out with the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and crackerjack. I don’t care if I never go back. For its root, root, root for the cubbies. If they don’t win it’s a shame. For its one, two, three strikes, you’re out at the old ballgame!”

Or, perhaps you recall the fun of doing the wave or beach ball toss in the crowd at a baseball game or waiting with excitement to see the mascot and players take the field.

Breaking Barriers Today joined Lansing Parks and Recreation along with other organizations such as CMH, CADSA to hang out at Cooley Law Baseball Stadium.  The Lansing Lugnuts played against the Bowling Green Hot Rods with a final score of 4-2. Lugnuts took the win!

Before the game, our “kids” from Breaking Barriers Today and Lansing Parks & Recreation participated in a parade on the baseball field and met with Big Lug, the Lugnut team mascot, on home plate! Everyone came home happy and also tired, but we all enjoyed our time and meeting up with other friends at the ballgame.  All in all, it was an exciting day for the whole group; especially with this being something that has never been done in the history of Breaking Barriers Today or After School Program.

Good game, good day, with good friends!
