Scott Thomas Throwing First Pitch @ Wrigley!

So a couple weeks ago, I hear Sue Hertzfeldt scream from her office.  “Scott Thomas is on the phone.  He’s throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley!”  Then I saw this picture from him on FaceBook and knew I had to share it.  His name is even on the scoreboard!

Scott Thomas was on our staff as worship arts director for some time….and he and Sue successfully served as my Cub fan counterbalance!   In my kindness 🙂 , I’m even posting this picture on a night when the Cubs beat the Cardinals for the second night in a row.  (As if it matters for either team at this stage!)

Scott won a contest and got the chance.  Here’s how he described it to me in an email…

“Yea, it was really an opportunity of a lifetime.  So surreal to head to the mound (stepped OVER the foul line :), hear your name announced, take a look around, and try not to spend 20 minutes out there soaking it all in!  My arm was shaking so bad – about 1/2 way through my motion, I thought, “oh man, it’s not gonna get there!”,  Luckily, it did!”

Cool Stuff.

One Response to “Scott Thomas Throwing First Pitch @ Wrigley!”

  1. Greg, I appreciate the sacrifice it took to share the moment. We as Cub fans have to take all we can get…. like sweeping the series in St. Louis. I know, I know, presently there is no comparison between the Cubs and the Cardinals. Like I said, we’ll take what we can get, after all, we are desperate!

    BTW, besides you looking like Wayne Gretzky, I happen to think you also look like a young John Wayne.

    Be Blessed,
    Mike
    That is all!
