Take me out to the ballgame...

...take me out to the Emory crowd. The Dallas-Ft. Worth Chapter of Emory Alumni gathered this past Thursday, July 23 at the Frisco RoughRiders home game versus the San Antonio Missions. Beyond buying peanuts and Cracker Jacks (and Dippin' Dots!), the alumni chapter also sent off their incoming first-year Emory students in style.

Chapter members and incoming students alike gathered inside the ballpark for an all-you-can-eat picnic prior to the first pitch. The weather had cooled to a glorious 88 degrees, and Texas natives couldn't have been happier!

Nearly 40 Emory alumni, students, parents, and friends attended the event--ranging from a 4-year-old to Donald Waddington, who graduated from Emory in 1949, and his wife Polly.

Little brothers, parents, and best friends accompanied the incoming students. One younger brother even caught a foul ball (when you're looking at colleges in 10 years, don't forget that Emory got you that game ball!)

And in the end, the RoughRiders pulled out an exciting win over the Missions with a final score of 7-3. A win for the home team, and an even bigger win for Emory!
