9/9 Good timing
Kelly Shepardson was on her way to the airport when she got a flat tire. That’s the bad news. The good news is the delay gave her time to hear more of the Cubs-Pirates radio broadcast, and she could hear her fiance, Anthony Recker, hit his first Major League home run in the fourth inning for the Cubs. Recker, who is from Allentown, Pa., was making his first start for the Cubs. His father was at the game.
“I’m glad he got to see it — he was pretty pumped,” Anthony said.
How do we know all of this about Kelly’s day? She kept people posted on Twitter, and apparently announced when Recker was designated for assignment.
“She keeps up to date on everything,” Recker said.
