Omaha, NE: Bark at the Park

For one of our Guest Relations employees, Cecilia Padilla, a recent night at the ballpark was extra special. Werner Park hosted “Bark at the Park,” a monthly event where it’s encouraged to bring your pooch and hot dogs are served for a quarter. Cecilia’s date to the game was her grandpup, Autumn. She also coordinated with one of our nurses, Joanna Gilchrist, who brought her furry friend, Lucy. The Omaha Storm Chasers faced off against the Tacoma Rainers. This was only part of the fun for her.

Cecilia’s son-on-law, Tyler Cloyd, was in the dugout for the opposing team. Although Tyler pitches for Tacoma, he and his wife, Tonya, didn’t have far to travel for this away game. They own a house behind Werner Park. Tyler is a Bellevue East graduate and former UNO standout. He made his second appearance for Tacoma the following evening, since signing last Friday in front of family and friends.

As quoted by the Omaha World Herald, Tyler said “Being from here, you always dream about playing here in front of your home fans and your family.” He is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and pitched four scoreless innings in the opening game of a doubleheader split between his Rainers and Omaha. Tacoma won the opener 1-0, scoring the game’s only run after Tyler was done for the night. The Stormchasers won the night game 5-0.

Excellent Teams:  We will select and develop team members who radiate warmth, compassion and respect while skillfully performing their duties.
