HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - Last Friday, Wyatt Blunt, a member of the Hastings Holling Plumbing minor league team, was awarded the opportunity to throw the first pitch at Duncan Field ahead of the Hastings Five Points Bank Chiefs game against Lincoln Sampson Construction.

Blunt sold 560 raffle tickets, raising $1,120 for Hastings baseball and its affiliated programs. Not only did he get to throw the first pitch at the game, but the Chiefs also awarded him $350 to keep for himself.

“It is really cool and it is super fun because I’m going to use this for my family,” Blunt said.
