Vets invited to away game tailgate at Kinnick

News, Sports

October 5th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

Iowa City’s Kinnick Stadium will be playing host to an “away game tailgate” event for veterans again this season. Gary Boseneiler, Director of Johnson County Veterans Affairs, says this marks the third year for the event. “The first year we had 300 veterans and family members attend and last year I had 500 sign in. I’m anticipating about the same this year,” Boseneiler says.

The event is scheduled for October 15 and will begin at 10:30 a.m., about 30 minutes before the kickoff between the Iowa Hawkeyes and Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette, Indiana. A light tailgating lunch is free (first-come, first-serve) to veterans and their family members who can watch the game on TVs at Kinnick Stadium. Boseneiler says, judging from the first two years, plenty of vets from outside the Iowa City area will attend. “Folks from all across the state and even a few who come across the border,” Boseneiler said.

The tailgate event takes place inside the press box at Kinnick. Parking is available on the west side of the stadium. “You can park for free right outside the stadium and student veteran volunteers will help escort people from the parking lot upstairs to the area where the food and TVs will be,” Boseneiler said.

As of right now, it’s unclear what channel the game will be on. The possibilities include ABC, ESPN2, or ESPN-U. Boseneiler warns, if the Iowa-Purdue game is televised by ESPN-U, that channel is NOT part of the cable package at Kinnick Stadium — so attendees would be able to watch the game.

Anyone who has questions or would like more information can contact Gary Boseneiler at 319-356-6049 or by email: gbosenei@co.johnson.ia.us

Johnston Little League mom who was fighting cancer dies

Sports

October 5th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

The mother of a Johnston baseball player whose battle with cancer was featured during the Little League World Series has died. Jen Garcia was being interviewed on E-S-P-N about her fight with pancreatic cancer and the bracelets the Johnston Little League team wore to support her as son J.T. came to bat against California in the Little League World Series. The interview was interrupted when J.T. hit a home run and Garcia stood and cheered.

The video of the interview drew national attention. Garcia died Tuesday morning. She was an elementary teacher in Urbandale and the superintendent of schools there sent out an email informing parents of her death. The email called Garcia a “highly valued member” of the school team and someone who “will be deeply missed by all of those who had the pleasure of knowing her.”

Lester to start Game 1 of NLDS for Cubs

Sports

October 5th, 2016 by Ric Hanson

CHICAGO (AP) — Jon Lester will start the Chicago Cubs’ playoff opener. Manager Joe Maddon announced Tuesday he was going with Lester over Kyle Hendricks and 2015 NL Cy Young Award winner Jake Arrieta in Game 1 of the NLDS against the New York Mets or San Francisco Giants. The series opens at Wrigley Field on Friday, with the Cubs’ sights set on winning their first World Series since 1908 after leading the majors with 103 wins.

Lester (19-5) was second in the majors to Hendricks with a 2.44 ERA. Hendricks (16-8, 2.13) will start Game 2 at home on Saturday. Arrieta (18-8, 3.10) will pitch Game 3 on the road, with John Lackey (11-8, 3.35) starting Game 4 if necessary. Lester was 10-2 with a 1.74 ERA at Wrigley Field. Hendricks also dominated at home, going 9-2 with a 1.32 ERA. Arrieta was shaky down the stretch, going 3-3 with a 4.33 ERA in his last seven starts.
