It was a beautiful afternoon at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick when 119 Rotary Club of Scottsdale members and guests gathered for their annual Spring Training game to watch the Colorado Rockies and the Chicago Cubs, with the Cubs winning 5 to 4.  Rockies owner/chairman and CEO, Richard L. Monfort, was on hand to greet Rotarians and guests at the game. Monfort is spending his 21st year with the Rockies franchise, is a Colorado native, Rotarian and member of the Boulder Rotary Club.   
Attendees were provided a tasty ballpark catered buffet lunch with unlimited peanuts and popcorn at the Miller Lite Deck location. The chair of this year's ballpark event, Bob Saathoff, organized a fun raffle to add to the club foundation's scholarship fund. Rotarian Gil Gifford served as the afternoon's emcee and introduced the club's board members, who gifted raffle items and items donated by the local merchants.
