With less than 90 days till the Pickles home-opener our World Series Champion/Manager Jeff Lahti along with Portland Pickles radio broadcaster Ryne Buchanan had a speaking engagement for the public and Milwaukie Rotary Club on March 14th. We were so excited to bring a little sunshine and baseball during these rainy days of March. Speaking on the upcoming season fans were able to get an early glimpse into what the upcoming 2017 season will look like.
Broaching topics like what we did well last season and what areas we are excited to improve on for an even better second season. After addressing the group Ryne opened it up to those in attendance to ask any questions that they might have of Jeff Lahti or the Pickles. The in-depth Q&A session was then followed up by a fun meet-and-greet. The experience as a whole was, "rewarding, informative, and fun," as one Ryne Buchanan said. If you were not able to make it out for this event, do not fret there will be more opportunities in the near future to support your Portland Pickles. We would like to thank the Milwaukie Rotary for hosting the event and look forward to seeing the Rotarians at the Ballpark this Summer.
