Paula the Penguin
Working with the Freedom truly gives you once in a lifetime opportunities. Meeting Paula the Penguin was one of those moments.
Recently, the Freedom have teamed up with Newport Aquarium as part of a sponsorship deal. They usually set up a booth once a week with some interesting activities for the kids, like the "shark petting tank". The announcement that their very own penguin would be throwing out the first pitch had everyone excited though.
Paula stands a menacing 1 ft. 2 inches, but has a miraculous arm for a penguin. She was really nervous about the first pitch, but she followed her trainer out to the mound and threw a perfect strike.
You just never know what you're going to see when you come to Champion Window Field.
