LACONIA — The evening was clear and warm Saturday, July 27 as the Laconia Muskrats hosted the Newport Gulls in a game that went 12 innings, with the Muskrats coming out on top 3-2.
It was also Live Free Home Health Care Night at Robbie Mills park, as Live Free hosted guests from Central NH VNA & Hospice, Taylor Community, Wesley Woods of Gilford, and 40 campers and staff from Camp Winaukee in Moultonborough.
"One of our schedulers, Tori Searles husband, Jason, is the facilities manager at Winaukee, and we thought what a great idea to have the kids come and enjoy a baseball game as our guests," said LFHHC Co-Owner Jason Harvey.
"It was great fun to watch the campers enjoy the kids games between innings as well as the game itself," said Co-Owner and Clinical Director Jennifer Harvey..
Camper Jackson Meli, 11, from New York, was selected to throw out the first pitch, which sailed straight into the catchers mitt.
"This was the best day of my life," said Meli. "We got to go to a water Park and we were the only kids at camp who got to go to a baseball game...all in the same day!"
