KidsPeace foster youth enjoy day out at Rockland Boulders game
Some KidsPeace foster youth were treated to a day at the ballgame Saturday at Provident Bank Park in Pomona. In addition to taking in a double-header at the Rockland Boulders, the children participated in a variety of activities including batting cages, pitching practice and Boulder train rides, and even had a chance to meet a few of the players. Between innings, the KidsPeace youth were invited onto the field to wave to the stadium full of cheering fans. Max, a foster child, posed with the Boulder Bird, who was celebrating his 4th birthday.
