  1. LeToux and the selfie is with my son Paddy! I always try to take him to these events as he enjoys it so much. The team members have always been very good to him and all the other young fans that show up. Paddy and I were very grateful to have to chance to apologize personally to Chris Pontius for any thing offensive that we might have said to him in years past. It is, after all, one reason we have a corner seat close to the field. Just doing our part…

    Thanks to the U for a fun night out on the town!

  2. Lucky Striker says:

    Nice of the players to volunteer their time. Seem like they enjoy it.

  3. Thats the “you suck kid” so hilarious =D great story on PSS this week, had me rolling!

  4. Always a blast to meet these guys! I got to talk at length with Keegan. Turns out his father (Rob?) graduated from the same high school as I (Carlisle, PA). Just a few years ahead of me… god, that makes me feel old! My parents were both teachers in the school district then so one of them must have had him as a student 🙂
