We were greeted by Matt Fulks, the director of CYITML. He was our host for the night. Our first stop was a trip behind home plate for batting practice. We took some photos, took in the scenery, and then moved up to a suite with a beautiful view of the field. On our way to the suite, we stopped by the room where postgame press conferences are conducted and posed for a few pictures.
Once we arrived at the suite, we heard Mr. Darol Rodrock, founder of Rodrock Homes and the Rodrock Foundation, as he shared the story of his childhood and his passion for helping young people in crisis.
Next, General Manager Dayton Moore entered the room. He first walked through the room and shook hands and met each of our young men in attendance. He then asked questions of our young men about Freedom Hoops and the work our kids do in the community. He then spoke about his own journey to where he is now and opened the floor for questions from the kids.
We were then fed a delicious meal, and escorted to our seats in right field where we cheered on the Royals. It was a perfect day and a true once-in-a-lifetime experience for our young men.
