Education Day Returns to the Corn Crib
By Hunter Dysert, Dolapo Oyenuga, Federico Guardigli
The Corn Crib wrapped up a successful education day on Tuesday, May 3rd. For the first time since 2019, Education Day was brought back and it was well worth the wait.
Education Day is an event where schools in the community are invited out to the Corn Crib to learn about the game of baseball as well as enjoy a game.
Thirteen schools took part in Education Day and the total attendance of that day was 1,269. This marks the Corn Cribs 2nd largest attended game in the last calendar year.
The light rain didn’t stop the passion and excitement of the kids at this event. There were constant cheers from the 1000+ kids throughout all nine innings of the game.
We had many different activities for the kids such as a bounce house, games between innings, and an appearance by Corny as well. Corny was a major attraction at the game with him being constantly surrounded by kids and taking pictures with them, signing autographs, and even hitting the “griddy” a time or two.
The game itself was played between Heartland Community College and Triton College. In a high scoring game, Heartland came out on top with a final score of 16-8.
We appreciate all of the schools and kids that came out and made it a successful event!
