Toledo: The 6th Annual Latino Scholarship Day with the Toledo Mud Hens is this Sunday, July 27, 2008, at the Fifth Third Field in downtown Toledo, according to Bob Salazar, a member of the Spanish American Organization (SAO) that is promoting the event in collaboration with La Prensa.


“Last year 600 tickets were sold and this year we expect sales to exceed 750,” said Salazar—the game is sold-out.”


“Tickets are $10, with $8 going to the Toledo Mud Hens and $2 being retained for Latino Scholarships to Owens Community College and Lourdes College,” added Rico of La Prensa. Seating for the purchased tickets are in sections 117 and 118 (first-base entrance).


At 6:00PM, field activities prior to the game include: SAO scholarships will be awarded to several students of Lourdes College and Owens Community College. A La Prensa $500 scholarship will also be awarded to a senior of St. Francis de De Sales High School, who is a member of LASSO and attending college in the fall.


Festivities begin at 5:10PM, with mariachi at the home plate entrance and the folkloric dance group, Imagenes Mexicanas, at the third plate entrance, beginning 5:30PM. Entertainment is being provided by the Toledo Mud Hens and El Camino Real Restaurants.


The United States anthem is being sung by Toledo diva Yvonne Ramos. Game time is 6:30PM, with the Toledo Mud Hens playing the Pawtucket Red Sox.
