Take me Out to the Ball Game

The Kent Base Ball Club, along with friends and family (for a group of 20), made an appearance on Sunday May 31, 2009 at the game of the West Michigan Whitecaps vs the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers at Fifth/Third Ballpark in Comstock Park, MI.

Gordon Olson (KBBC manager) wowed the radio audience with his knowledge of vintage base ball during his in-game radio interview with WBBL AM 1340 (now WBBL FM107.3) play-by-play hosts Steve Lloyd Jones and Dan Elve.

At the 7th inning stretch, it was the team’s turn to impress the thousands on hand in the sun drenched ballpark. Led by Jerry Kochanski and Winnie Parker, the Kents gave a fine rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”. It was a lot of fun … and helped promote the team and the upcoming Silas K. Pierce Cup Tournament on June 6th at Riverside Park in Grand Rapids.
