Season 10 “American Idol” Scotty McCreery will throw out the first pitch at the Lookouts baseball game at AT&T Field on Friday, June 22, at 7:15 p.m.

Pete Intza, Lookouts spokesman, confirmed McCreery’s appearance and first-pitch honors. The country singer’s visit is one of the promotions during Paint the Park Purple, a benefit for the Mid-South chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association during the Lookouts vs. Pensacola Blue Wahoos game.

McCreery should have no trouble getting the ball across home plate. A pitcher on his Garner High School baseball team, he loves the game so much he gave up touring with Brad Paisley this past spring semester to return to school to play ball his senior year.

Beth Cragon, office and volunteer coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association, said Paint the Park Purple will be an awareness event for the local chapter.

“The Lookouts will be wearing purple jerseys that will be sold in a silent auction during the game,” she said.

Cragon said fans attending the game are asked to wear purple as well.

“If fans buy game tickets through the Alzheimer’s Association, they will be the same price but part of the proceeds will be donated to the association,” said Cragon.

“They can get tickets by calling 265-3600 or dropping by the office, 7625 Hamilton Park Drive, at the intersection of Lee Highway and Bonny Oaks Drive.”
