It was one of the most memorable events of which I was asked to take part.
It wasn’t a chase, or a hunt. It wasn’t some new extreme sport or off the wall competition. I didn’t have to wear any special gear or have any appendage taped.
It was a dinner, a plain and simple dinner for the Hesston College baseball team, its parents, family and some friends.
This dinner was very informal, served in the Campus Activities Center after the doubleheader on April 23. However, as informal as it was, it truly showed what it meant to be a Lark, a member of the Lark baseball team and the Hesston College family as well.
One of the baseball dads, Eric Horton from Denton, Texas and a baseball mom, Marilyn Berry from Mulvane, pulled this together with the help of Head Coach Kyle Howell. Most of the planning was done via text messaging, email and even the use of Twitter as people volunteered to bring food for their kids, some of whom were many miles from home.
