Helicopter Delivers Ball for First Pitch at Arkansas Travelers for ‘Strike Out Stroke Night’

A helicopter landed with University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) neurologist and AR SAVES medical director Sanjeeva Reddy Onteddu, MD, to deliver the ball for the first pitch of the Arkansas Travelers’ game against the Springfield Cardinals.

During the event, volunteers answered questions about stroke, distributed stroke education materials, and threw brain-shaped stress toys into the stands. Stroke survivors were also  honored.

The event, held at Dickey-Stephens Park, was sponsored by the UAMS-led AR SAVES (Arkansas Stroke Assistance through Virtual Emergency Support) program and hosted by the Arkansas Travelers.
