Baseball, Beer, and Brats

By Reid McGraw

Join your friends of the Workers’ Compensation Section for a baseball blast on April 23, 2020 in Greensboro.

Baseball, beer, and brats. Or, barbecue if you prefer a different alliteration. Nothing speaks the rite of passage into spring or summer quite like those delicious items. When combined with the company of good friends from the Workers’ Compensation Section of the Bar, the recipe is perfect; or at least it was last spring when we gathered for fellowship at BB&T baseball field in Charlotte for a Knights game. My crew arrived early, as I enjoy the pregame rituals of baseball. And we wanted to make sure to sample the wares of bar and buffet early and often. The beer was cold (and there were several craft offerings), and the food tasty. In addition to the traditional barbecue and brats, there were wings and a taco bar. Literally, something for everyone. And did I mention the beer was cold and good?

The home team won, yet that was not the point. None of my girls caught a foul ball, although a couple of them did scurry away from a few. My family had a delightful time, and by all appearances, so did the others who joined us for the evening. Some of our colleagues even offered the outing as a little recreational time for their staff. A good time for all.

Our recent time together at the Grandover reminded me of how fortunate we are to have such a collegial Bar Section, which makes this the perfect time to plan another opportunity to gather with friends of the Section for fun at a baseball game. The Bar Association has lined it up for us this spring in Greensboro, on April 23. All we have to do is show up and have some fun! Bring the entire family. I can’t predict another win for the home team, but I can promise a great time. The first beer is on me . . . well, not really. Go anyway. You will be glad you did. Mark your calendars for April 23, and sign up!
