The clouds parted and the sun came out on Tuesday, August 16th as Roary, GMPL's Library Lion, threw out the first pitch at a Lake Erie Crushers game. Roary was met by two of his mascot friends, Browser, from Lorain Public Library and the Crusher's much-loved mascot, Stomper. Anyone who presented their library card at the main gate received a discount on seats at the game. Other libraries at the event included the Elyria Public Library System and Avon Lake Public Library. Roary met with numerous friends and new acquaintances attending the game and handed out bookmarks and licorice sticks. It was a very festive time and enjoyed by all.
The Lake Erie Crushers came from behind to beat the
Windy City Thunderbolts 5 - 3.
Stop by GMPL and see Roary's first-pitch ball he received for so expertly making it across home plate. Check out the video on our Facebook page.
