I’ve talked at length about the importance of the Barons community service endeavors and how it impacts the city greatly. The continued community hand was extended last season when the Barons visited the 76th Maintenance Wing at Tinker Air Force base. The large Air Force base is adjacent to downtown Oklahoma City in the Midwest City area, and is the managing point for engines, missiles, and other military manufacturing pieces.
The team toured facilities, asked questions, and learned more about the military history and importance of the OKC surrounding area. Ironically, they took Teemu Hartikainen, who is no stranger to military service.
Once again, a nice moment for the Barons as a team and the greater organization.
