Dads Celebrate Father's Day at the Ballpark

Posted: Updated:

While some dads got to spend Father's Day relaxing, grilling, or out on the lake, nearly 400 dads spent their Father's Day at Caswell Park watching their daughters play softball.

For almost 20 years the Mankato Peppers have hosted the Summer Sizzler over Father's Day weekend, and some dads have made it a tradition to spend the day at the ballpark.

Rick Andrego says, "We've spent the last seven or eight years here with Lily, and my other two girls and I always enjoy it."

But some dads not only got to watch, but coach their daughters as well.

Lily says, "It's always fun having him as a coach. I've had him since I was like this big."

Even though they were playing ball, the girls still found time to celebrate their dads.
