We spent some time with our friends at Wichita Wind Surge and convinced them to let us try our hand at fielding grounders and catching pop flies at Riverfront Stadium today — and after an eventful enjoyable day, lets just say we’ve decided to stick to our day jobs!
We were joined by Ben Hartman, Head Groundskeeper at Riverfront Stadium for the Wichita Wind Surge. Any given day you can find Ben raking, watering, painting and grooming the field at Riverfront Stadium. He personally spends countless hours every day to ensure it is beautiful and looking it’s best. Although he doesn’t let many people on the diamond, today he let the #GDK team pop in and enjoy the field from the players’ perspective. We had a ball trying our best to emulate BJ Boyd and Jermaine Palacios but as you can imagine, came up a bit short.
We’ve decided to leave the exciting playmaking to the pros! Visit windsurge.com to grab your tickets to the inaugural season for the Wichita Wind Surge. The team is exciting to watch, the organization collaborates with the community to provide an incredible gameday experience and the hometown-team pride is bursting at the seams! Don’t miss out, see you at the ball park!
