Round Rock Express - Conley Sports / DBF Fundraiser

What a wonderful time we had at the Round Rock Express baseball game this past Sunday evening!

My good friends John and Stacey Conley of Conley Sports were the host for this wonderful event. It was the kickoff for the Austin Marathon that coming up in February and also a fundraiser for the Dick Beardsley Foundation.

We had a beautiful banquet room with lots of good things to eat, the banquet room went right out along the right field base line so we had a great view to watch the ball game!

Myself, along with David Grice, of RaceWorks Incorporated, got to throw out the first pitch! Let me tell you, that pitching mound is like being up on a mountain! I had a good windup and though my pitch was a little wide of the plate, it made it there without bouncing in the dirt or going over the catchers head!

Afterward we all got to keep the ball we threw out! I spent most of the evening in and out of the banquet room, either watching the game or talking to folks. About half way through the evening, John got up and said a few words, then he asked me to say a few words about the Dick Beardsley Foundation, John then encourage donations and the foundation received over $500.00 in donations! Thank you!!!
A HUGE thank you to John and Stacey for hosting this fine event and for letting the Dick Beardsley Foundation be the beneficiary, Jill and I can't thank you and all the folks that came enough for your time and effort!
