Warden Cynthia Y. Tampkins of the California Rehabilitation Center (CRC) and over 100 staff members and their families enjoyed a day at the ball park at Quakes Stadium in Rancho Cucamonga.
The events of the day began with Warden Tampkins throwing out the first pitch − a strong curveball over home plate.
Warden Tampkins’ pitch was followed by a presentation of the flag by CRC’s Honor Guard while the Star Spangled Banner played and fireworks lit up the sky.
Although the Quakes lost to the Stockton Ports 14-2, the CRC employees and their families seemed to be having a good time, according to organizers of the event.
