Dateline August 29, 2012 – Certol International took its annual trip to Coors Field to watch the Rockies take on the Los Angeles Dodgers. Once a year during the summer Certol’s owners, Ed Cassinis and Liz Towner, treat the entire company to an outing at a Rockies game.
It is an act that is not only appreciated by the employees, but also gives everyone the chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful state of Colorado! In addition to being able to enjoy the game as a company, the Rockies organization also gave Certol a mention on the scoreboard in between the fourth and fifth inning, which received many cheers from our section.
The game started a little slow for the hometown team getting down by six until the seventh inning, when Tyler Colvin got a hit that drove in a run — making the score six to one to finish out the inning. In the eighth, there was more bad news for the Rockies as the Dodgers hit a grand slam, making the score ten to one. In the bottom of the eighth, the Rockies turned it on, scoring seven runs and closing the gap to only two runs.
Unfortunately, that would be the end of the scoring for either team, leaving the Rockies with a ten to eight loss. Although it was a tough loss for the Rockies, the Certol team had a great time and would also like to extend a huge thanks to Ed and Liz.
