Employees of the Charles County Government were recognized, and some threw out the first pitch, at Saturday night’s sold-out Southern Maryland Blue Crabs game against the Camden Riversharks at Regency Furniture Stadium in Waldorf. Camden won the game, beating the Blue Crabs 8-4.
Stadium seating was sold out for the game. Blue Crabs Marketing Manager Courtney Freeland declared the final attendance figure at 6,105. County employees Jimmy Kilinski, Terry Rodgers, Kirby Blass from Planning and Growth Management and Brian Wood from Public Works all threw out honorary first pitches.
For the Camden Riversharks, RBIs were scored by Bill Rice, Paddy Matera and Jake Eigsti. Richard Giannotti hit three RBIs for the Blue Crabs and Javi Colina hit an RBI. Despite the rally by the Blue Crabs, the Riversharks won the game. Following the game, a postgame party was held on the field for the fans, a concept that’s common at local motorsports venues across America. Freeland said the postgame parties will be done at all Saturday night home games for the Blue Crabs.
