Greenhouse Alumni Connect at Baseball Game

On Friday, May 19, 2023, amidst a thunderous and hail-filled storm, approximately 30 resilient Greenhouse alumni gathered at Rider Field for the Frisco Rough Riders minor league baseball game, donning their team colors and exuding an unwavering spirit. As we settled into our seats, the energy and anticipation in the air were palpable, matching the intensity of the storm that had raged earlier in the day.

The Frisco Rough Riders, the local Minor League Baseball team, took to the field with a steadfast determination, ready to showcase their skills and entertain the dedicated fans who had braved the elements. The players’ passion for the sport was evident as they displayed their athleticism, executing remarkable plays and thrilling the crowd with their exceptional talent.

With each crack of the bat and resounding cheer from the stands, the camaraderie among the alumni grew stronger. The shared love for the game created an instant bond, fostering an atmosphere of unity and celebration. We cheered on the Rough Riders, exchanging stories of our own athletic triumphs and connecting with fellow alumni on a deeper level.

As the game progressed, the storm outside seemed to fade into the background, replaced by the lively atmosphere within the ballpark. The alumni present, undeterred by the earlier weather turmoil, reveled in the joyous moments, including spectacular home runs, impressive double-plays, and exhilarating pitching performances.

Beyond the on-field action, the Frisco Rough Riders game became an opportunity for us to reconnect and strengthen our bonds. We reminisced about shared experiences at Greenhouse, celebrating the strides made in personal journeys to overcome addiction. The game provided a space where we could support one another and acknowledge the positive transformations they had achieved since their time at the facility.

As the innings passed, it became clear that this evening at the ballpark was about more than just a baseball game. It symbolized resilience, unity, and the triumph of the human spirit. Through the ups and downs of the game and the challenges we faced in getting to this point, we emerged stronger and more united than ever before.

When the final pitch was thrown and the game came to a close, our spirits remained high. We left the ballpark, not only as fans of the Frisco Rough Riders but also as a tightly-knit community of alumni who had shared a remarkable experience together. This evening served as a testament to our collective strength and our ability to find joy and connection, even in the face of adversity.

As I reflect on that unforgettable day, I am reminded of the power of coming together, whether it be to celebrate recovery, support our local teams, or simply enjoy the thrill of a baseball game. May 19, 2023, will forever hold a special place in our hearts as the day we defied the storm and created lasting memories at the Frisco Rough Riders game, solidifying our bonds and reaffirming our commitment to supporting one another on our journeys to recovery.
