A big THANK YOU to Duramed FUTURES Tour golfer Caroline Larsson for stopping by Alliance Bank Stadium tonight. Thanks also go out to our friends at Alliance Bank for bringing her out to the ballpark. Caroline was in town to promote the Alliance Bank Golf Classic, which will be held July 18-20 at the Links at Erie Village.
Caroline, currently the 14th ranked player on the tour, competed against Chiefs pitcher Bill Murphy and WHEN’s Jim Lerch in a pre-game “closest to the pin” contest. Lerch (under the guidance of caddy Perry Noun) and Murphy hit a few good shots, but Caroline managed the wind like the professional golfer she is and won the contest.
Caroline also threw out the game’s ceremonial first pitch, signed autographs on the concourse and visited the Chiefs’ radio booth before leaving the ballpark.
Thanks again, Caroline and good luck!
