Teams from our Saratoga and Schenectady Day Community Opportunities Programs (DCOP) headed to the field for a Valley Cats Game this week, and it was quite a hit!

They settled into the front row of third base side, making themselves right at home rooting for the home team and enjoying great park food and refreshments. And, since this is DCOP, you know they were hobnobbing with the ValleyCats’ mascot Southpaw and dancing to all the tunes!

The most exciting part of the day occurred during the game when ValleyCats second baseman, Luis Santana handed a baseball to our participant, Kim. She was so excited and held up the ball and said, “Look, I got something.” That game ball will likely be a prized souvenir and a happy memory for quite some time.
