ILSR’s Brenda Platt co-leads the Young Activist Club of Takoma Park, Maryland. On Earth Day, April 22, the Washington Nationals baseball team honored the Club by inviting 9 members to be the Starting 9 for the Nats’ game against the Cardinals.
After the first pitch by EPA acting administrator Bob Perciasepe, members of the Young Activist Club took up each of the player’s positions, the players ran out and greeted the kids, and the kids ran off the field. The announcer mentioned that the Club is working to get rid of styrofoam in its school and community. Great recognition for the Club!
We enjoyed free tix to the game, which could only have been improved by a Nats win. Next time!
