Mayor Patrick Collins threw the ceremonial first pitch on Opening Day for the Cheyenne Post 6 baseball team Friday, April 9, to dedicate the new artificial turf at Powers Field. The City recently secured funding to upgrade the playing surface, ensuring the blue-ribbon ballpark remains a gem in the Capital City.
Collins made the ceremonial first pitch. However, his pitching career was short-lived as the skipper immediately called the bullpen and placed Collins on the disabled list due to a sore shoulder!
Pregame festivities began at 5:30 p.m., and the game started at 6 p.m. between Cheyenne Post 6 and Windsor.
Joining Mayor Collins in first-pitch duties was 90th Operations Support Squadron (OSS) Commander, Lt. Colonel Michael Suden. The 90th Operations Support Squadron (OSS) recently received the Omaha Trophy! The United States Strategic Command awards the trophy to people who show diligence and capability in the realm of strategic deterrence.
