World Series was a ball

Posted: Monday, July 13, 2009

Frontier Community Services held it sixth annual World Series Baseball Event on June 27 at the Kenai Little League fields. Many thanks to the families and friends of our consumers who traveled from Valdez, Homer and Seward as well as the numerous Kenai Peninsula community members who attended our event. It was an incredible day and we sincerely appreciate everyone's efforts in making it happen.

FCS would like to thank Kenai Peninsula Borough Mayor Dave Carey, Soldotna Mayor Peter Micciche, Kenai Mayor Pat Porter and Rep. Mike Chenault for being a part of this awesome community event. Your display of sportsmanship and teamwork means a great deal to the consumers and staff of Frontier Community Services.

Thank you Melissa Peterson, the Kenai Little League and their Board of Directors for your hard work in making this such a memorable day. The World Series just would not have been the same without your attention to detail and great attitude.

To the Peninsula Oilers and their management team: thanks so much for taking the time to play ball and sign autographs with our consumers. It means so much to them and to FCS staff.

A big thank you to the Peninsula Clarion, Dan Gensel, Merrill Sikorski, KSRM Radio and KDLL Radio for getting the word out about our event. Your dedication to your community is awesome!

Finally, a big hearty thanks to Dr. Marguerite McIntosh who has been the World Series physician on site for six years. Dr. Mac, we appreciate you very much.

The goal of the World Series is to help people with developmental disabilities participate in the great American pastime and FCS will continue to bring baseball to these individuals year after year. Batter up in 2010!
