The Lake Shore Chinooks baseball team, a summer wooden bat league for college students, recently held an Associated Bank evening at Kapco Field in Grafton, with the first pitch thrown out by Dave Frank, Central Region Retail Director, of Associated.
This is the Lake Shore Chinooks inaugural season.
The first 500 attendees received a free baseball with the Associated/Chinook logo and were invited to an autograph session with the team. Associated colleagues also offered attendees the opportunity to play 'spin and win' for Associated Bank giveaways, and participate in field events between innings.
The Lakeshore Chinooks are the Grafton area's newest baseball team. The Chinooks join the Northwoods League, a summer league for college players. Each season, the Chinooks play 35 home games and 35 away games from late May through mid-August. The Chinooks players, some of the best college players in the country, come from all over the U.S. The Chinooks home field is Kapco Park, currently under construction on the campus of Concordia University in Mequon.
