She Steals a Base!!!

What a lucky girl my daughter is!  Rachel got selected by the Oakland A's organization to be the contestant in "Steal the Base":  she had to run from the left field wall to 3rd base, pick up the base and run back in 45 seconds.  It was amazing hearing her name announced twice over the PA system and the whole stadium went WILD cheering her on!  She got lots of great free stuff:  a  T-shirt, a signed baseball, AND a $25 gift card.  Maybe Rachel will take her parents to a game with this??!!  Actually, she already had as we got free tickets and parking (and it was a fireworks game, not to mention that the A's had a dramatic last minute win!)  Rachel basked in her fame everytime we walked around the stadium and folks recognized her.  You GO girl!
