Turn Back The Clock Night at Constellation Park, June 13, 2014

Next Friday (June 13th) is 'Turn Back The Clock Night' at Constellation Park in Sugar Land.  The Skeeters will wear authentic Sugar Land Blues jerseys and caps (see below)  to honor Sugar Land heritage.  The jerseys and caps will be auctioned to Skeeters fans to help raise funds for the Sugar Land Heritage Foundation.

There will be other promotions to highlight Sugar Land's heritage, but I want everyone to know that Lou Payton (SLHS '46) will throw out the ceremonial first pitch. As the following clippings show, Lou played for the Fort Bend County Jaybirds after playing for the University of Houston in his college days.

Jaybirds, 1951.

I don't know if Lou has been limbering up his arm, but I'm certain he'll do better than 50 Cent.
