Root, root, root for the home team! No, I’m not talking about our Demon Deacons. I’m talking about The Dash, Winston-Salem’s very own minor league baseball team. Being in college, it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the bubble of Wake Forest. All too often we forget that we are located in a vibrant city with lots going on. In an attempt to merge these two worlds of Wake Forest University and Winston-Salem, the BB&T Ballpark hosted “Senior Night at the Ballpark” this past Friday, September 3.
Several seniors took part in the 7th inning stretch field games, entertaining their classmates with water balloon tosses and other playful competitions. The night concluded with a celebratory display of fireworks over the beautiful new stadium. Fun was had by all, both students and Winston-Salem locals. Keep your eyes peeled for more free events like this, and don’t forget to break out of the Wake Forest bubble every once in a while. You might stumble upon a really great evening like this one.
