An opener to remember
Pintail Drive in Hammond was lined with cars Saturday afternoon for the fifth annual opener of TPC Field at the home of Nick and Leah Feyereisen. The ballpark is named after the couple’s nine-year-old triplets, Tanner, Parker and Cole.
As Leah explained before the games began, the idea for the ballpark was launched thanks to Nick’s dad, Don, who wanted to see his grandsons play a game of baseball before he passed away and to build a ballpark for children where teaching kindness and fair play are emphasized. Special guests included Jim Cunningham, voice of the Minnesota Twins. Sponsors included Super America, which donated the food, and Gillette Healthcare, as all the players wore customized shirts with their names on the back.
