Big weekend at our favorite ballpark

 It’s Girl Scout Night 7 p.m. Saturday when the Bradenton Marauders host the Clearwater Threshers at McKechnie Field. All Girl Scouts are welcome in their Scout shirts and sashes, and pre-registered troops will have a pre-game parade around the field. The first 500 Scouts get a special patch giveaway.
Then 5 p.m. Sunday, it’s Bark at the Park. Bring your dog to the game. Pooch passes are $5 at the box office and proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Manatee County. There will be a dog-owner look alike contest and prize for the best dressed pet.
Call 747-3031.

The day before at practice, Seminoles catcher Cameron Cox threw to second to nab Ethan Lundberg, but the ball glanced off his helmet and POW! smacked Mike in the mouth.
“Four hours later, we’re leaving the plastic surgeon’s office with about eight to 10 stitches total,” his mother said.
Dr. Jacqueline Royce did the honors.
