Meyer to throw out first pitch at Twins gameFive-year-old Scott Meyer, who went missing for 21 hours before being found on July 4, will throw out the first pitch at the July 29 Minnesota Twins baseball game.
PRESCOTT - Five-year-old Scott Meyer, who went missing for 21 hours before being found on July 4, will throw out the first pitch at the July 29 Minnesota Twins baseball game.
The date is significant as it is Autism Awareness Day, an event coordinated with the Twins along with the RT Autism Awareness Foundation, Inc., located out of Rochester, Minn.
Bradley Trahan, Executive Director of the RT Foundation, said the group and the Twins have held an Autism Awareness Day for the last seven years.
"We have had a great relationship with them," Trahan said. "They have been super accommodating and easy to work with."
Trahan said he heard about the Meyer search and upon being found, contacted Pierce County Sheriff Nancy Hove to see if the Meyer family was interested. Barb, Scott's mother, told the Herald Tuesday, it was a go.
"We are very honored Scott will be there," Trahan said. He said besides the first pitch, the group will walk the field and in addition, facts about Autism will be displayed on Target Field's Jumbotron along with information from the public address announcer.
The Twins will play the Cleveland Indians that day. First pitch is scheduled for 1:10 p.m.
