In doing so, the AHS baseball team had a sponsor tribute night to recognize businesses and organizations that purchased signage to help cover the cost of the new scoreboard. Sponsors were able to purchase signage on the current football scoreboard, or the new baseball scoreboard, the help the school cover the purchase and installation of the new board.
The list of sponsors includes Arlington Automotive, A-Town Crossfit, Bellevue Arlington, Concorde Career College, MicroPort Orthopedics, Neotek/Autozone, Ginna Walker State Farm Insurance, and Triumph Bank of Arlington.
Sponsors in attendance were all given the opportunity to throw out the “first pitches” of the 2014 season for Monday’s game against Brighton High School.
After throwing out the first pitch, each sponsor in attendance was individually recognized and presented a plaque thanking them for their generous donations and continued support to the Arlington HS scoreboard project. Head Coach Chris Ring also presented each of them with a baseball autographed by the varsity team.
“We are so grateful and appreciative for the support of these sponsors,” said athletic director Alan Campbell. “They are not only important to Arlington High School, they are also a very important part of our community, and they help make it a great place to be.”
The Tigers had a great opening night with a 1-0 win over the Brighton Cardinals. Making it even more special was the incredible performance of pitcher Reese Brewer.
In getting the win, Reese threw a “no-hitter” in this first appearance of the season. Sponsors in attendance were Cyndie Sorrenson from Arlington Automotive, John Hanks from A-Town CrossFit, Phil Newberry from Bellevue Arlington, Winston Granville from Concorde Career College, and Ginna Walker from State Farm Insurance.
