TOLEDO—Despite rain delays, the fourth annual Little Sisters Day at the Mud Hens broke attendance expectations with 250 friends and family members of the residents and sisters from the Sacred Heart Home in Oregon enjoying food, fun and baseball at Fifth Third Field June 25.

Before the game began, the Little Sisters were allowed on the field for a quick photograph. Little Sister of the Poor Cecilia Mary Sartorius, local superior and administrator of the Home, visited with some of the players and gave them a very unique souvenir — a “Little Sisters baseball card,” which she then autographed at the request of the players.

Acting as “Manager for the Day,” Sr. Sartorius went to home plate and exchanged the starting lineup for the Mud Hens with the opposing team manager and umpires. She was heard telling the officials and managers, “Let’s have a good clean game, no bad language and no spitting.”

The event brought many smiles to the faces of the residents, and all proceeds from the evening went to help support residents of the Sacred Heart Home.
