Some of the St. Joseph Mustangs players and coaches traveled across town to Carriage Square Health Care Thursday afternoon.
The event began at two o’clock with Mustangs General Manager Ky Turner introducing the players and coaches.
After that, the players dispersed around the lounge and mingled with and signed autographs for some of the residents of Carriage Square.
“For me, it’s really great. Anytime that you can go out into the community and talk to people it’s a great feeling,” Pomatto said.
Geane Egbret has family currently at Carriage Square, and he is happy the Mustangs are involved in the community.
“They (Mustangs) have been here for five years and they’ve brought a lot to St. Joseph. There is a lot of community pride and I try to get out to games when I can,” Geane Egbret said.
Mustangs’ pitcher Austin Aspegren made a few new friends Thursday afternoon. He spent a majority of the visit at the same table visiting with some Mustangs’ fans.
“It was a blast, we are getting to play the sport we love all summer and the least we can do is come out and visit with community members who support us throughout,” Aspegren said.
Throughout the summer, the Mustangs take several visits to areas around the community.
