8/30/2016: Take Me Out To the Ball Game

August 31, 2016

On August 30th, Spirit Cultural Exchange arranged for 4 Intern and Trainee participants to watch the 1st place Chicago Cubs Baseball Team play at Wrigley Field.  The participants were from Spain and South Korea.
Participants were able to interact with Spirit Staff Suzanne Kolasa and Gloria Quiñones-Garcia. They enjoyed the game and got a real kick out of the Cubs’ 7th inning stretch, which includes a personalized rendition of the song “Take me out to the Ballgame”. 

The South Korean participant was happy to explain rules and reasons for fans cheering at various times, throughout the game, to inquisitive Spanish participants. She is a fan of baseball in her home country. It was a very pleasant evening and they all celebrated a Cubs win at the end.
