Congratulations to the Wise Guys from Aurora, IL
2008 Partnerships in Action Softball Classic Champions!
On a day where the weather was perfect, the mood just right, and with the BBQ going on all cylinders, 10 teams and their families came together to raise well above $12,000 to help combat global poverty. After a long day of four regular season games for each team, the #1 seed Wise Guys came out on top in the semi-finals, in their last at bat, over a formidable Hitmen team that came from behind to take the lead in the top of the 7th inning. Meanwhile, a Cinderella story was taking place on the second field, with the underdog Parrot Media taking a grueling game against the #2 seed Cobra Kai team in their semi-final. In the Championship game, the potent Wise Guys offense proved to be too much for Parrot Media.
Both the Wise Guys and Parrot Media (see pictures attached) will be formally recognized on stage at Pritzker Pavillion in Millenium Park on August 24th at the Aga Khan Foundation Partnership Walk.
