On Thursday, May 17, the St. Tikhon’s Seminary Community came together for the annual Community Softball Game and cookout. The long late-spring evening provided the perfect conditions for a friendly softball game and, despite some rain earlier in the week rendering the usual field unusable, the grassy field between the seminary building and the dorms proved a perfect alternative, as the players dashed across the grass and the spectators looked on from chairs set up in the dorm parking lot. Professors, Seminarians, Wives, and Children all enjoyed the evening of sport and grilled meats (and bean patties). The event was further privileged to be visited by Seminary Rector Archbishop MICHAEL of New York and New Jersey. In the end, there were no losers on the day, as the event was the perfect pleasant diversion after a week of papers and exams.
