Toledo, Ohio, July 26, 2009: The Spanish American Organization (SAO) and La Prensa hosted its 7th annual Latino Scholarship Day with the Toledo Mud Hens, as the Toledo Mud Hens defeated the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees at Fifth Third Field, by the score of 10 to 2.

Mariachi Guadalajara and the folkloric dance group El Corazón de México began the entertainment 5:00PM, outside of the Home Plate entrance at Washington and Huron Streets—courtesy of El Camino Real Restaurants and the Toledo Mud Hens.


Scholarship recipients were recognized on the field at 6:15PM. The SAO recipients were: Savannah Frelin (Lourdes, $1,000), Jennifer Pioch (Lourdes, $1,000), and Ana Alicia Muñoz (Owens Community College, $650).
