Taking the mound

It’s been years since Thomas Hunt stepped onto a baseball field, or even been in the stands for a game.

On Thursday night, however, the part-time UD faculty member and fellow in the Center for Catholic Education made his return to the diamond in unique fashion.

Hunt, 82, was asked to throw the ceremonial first pitch at the April 25 Dayton Dragons’ game against the Peoria (Ill.) Chiefs.

“It’s an honor, that’s for certain,” Hunt says. “I’m not sure why I was asked to do Il Blackjack in Internet in realtà non si differenzia molto dalla versione reale, infatti ci sono il banco e di solito da uno a cinque scommettitori che giocano contro il banco. it, but I am so grateful.”

Hunt was joined by his wife and two daughters, as well as a grandson.

“I’ve heard about Dragons games a lot since moving here, but I’ve never been to one,” the right-hander admits. Hunt was previously a faculty member at Virginia Tech University, arriving at UD in 1996.

According to the Centerville, Ohio, resident, the opportunity required him to prepare extensively. Catching and stretching, he says, have filled his afternoons the last few weeks.

“I’ve gone to the Frericks Center with [Peter Titlebaum] and George Demarco,” Hunt explains. “I went on Monday and I threw from farther away.”

Fingers crossed for a clear sky, Hunt knew he would do just fine.

“Coach Vittorio from the UD baseball team stopped by this week,” Hunt says. “He told me, ‘Remember to follow through.’ “
