    The special auction for the jersey, tickets, food, and first pitch ended last night. Personally, I was hoping for $500 to give us a start towards $10k.

    Bidding was slow, but like the auctions I watch, the activity takes place at the end.

    Very happy to wake up to check and see that the auction closed for $550!!!!!

    Wow...if one word could describe yesterday for me, it would be that.

    I have not had that much fun in a long while!

    And as Chris told me:

    "Hey Vic, you're no longer a noob! You're now officially a one year veteran!"

    Looking forward to NEXT year!

    Still riding the adrenaline of SWN today and I think it may stick around for at least a few more days. I'm proud of our North Ridge members who contributed through acting, video work, assistance with costume construction, stepping in on choreography to offer a tip, tinting photos/flyers, taking time to rehearse, making trading cards, bringing cookies to rehearsals, scouting rehearsal locations, recruiting out of town guests, collaborated, wrote a script, volunteered, made suggestions to improve our presentation, and everything else that went into making the event a success. I know I may be missing something, but it is not intentional. The magnitude of this event has grown!

    We had a vision and kept working together toward our goal. We worked through our challenges and we've become a stronger group in doing so.

    I hope everyone can understand the impression we have to our out of town guests. We had troopers from NJ, PA, NYC, and Binghamton who experienced the event for the first time. They told me over and over how impressed they were with our organization, friendliness, and welcoming arms... And this was just after the morning rehearsal!

    Those troops left for home this morning and will be sharing this experience with their hometown friends.

    We truly set the bar for SWN in minor league baseball.

    In closing, thank you to everyone. I had an amazing time yesterday.

    Special thanks for my individual curtain call. I try not to hog the spotlight in my costume and am very humbled with the honor.

    Congratulations on another fantastic event!!

    I am, once again, in awe of how well we can come together to accomplish an event of this magnitude.
    Although the heat and humidity was quite challenging and did affect the integrity of a few costumes, we stuck through it together and raised a record breaking amount for the American Heart Association, brought joy to THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE, and made some new friends along the way.

    Well done to everyone!! I hope everyone was able to rest a bit today, rehydrate, and reflect on the how amazing yesterday's event truly was.

    I have been scouring youtube, twitter, and facebook for photos and videos, it seems folks have not done too much uploading at this point.

    Most of all, I am glad the game went well yesterday. The time lag between the end of game and show was well filled. Today's game (SUNDAY) went to 15 innings!!!! :eek:
    Final score .... 1-0 Bisons.
