Myrtle Beach Pelicans Game

   Saturday night we went to watch a Myrtle Beach Pelicans game. We went with Jim's captain, his wife, their daughter, her fiance, & his son. The Pelicans do a lot of activities to get the crowd involved. They let three children throw the first pitch since it was their birthday... starting with a little guy who was turning six that day.
They have local little league players announced and run out with the starting line up to their positions.
There were many mascots. The pelican, a shark, and Lubie the Jiffy Lube guy. They also had 2 cows from Chick-fil-a there who hosted a dance off on the dugouts and a ball dog who brings the umpires more balls.

Then there was Dan the Horn Man. He plays various songs on his uniform of horns. He does a really great job and plays a wide variety.
Duke the ball dog!
After the game Jim's captain ran into some guys that worked at the same department he did up north. So of course they had to share stories and talk until we were actually told we had to leave the ball park.
While we were waiting we watched the little kids run the bases.
