Get Nick and Lou to the Ballpark

Nick and Lou, the best of baseball friends and rivals!

When it comes to baseball in Chicago you are either Cubs or Sox, and being a Southsider 90 year old Lou Dodaro is Sox all the way. When he moved to Central Baptist Village he met his new best friend, the avid Chicago sports fan 92-year old Nick Scarpelli, a Northsider with unswerving loyalty to the Chicago Cubs. Lou and Nick were both born and raised in Chicago. They’re great pals who enjoy watching sports together and rib each other about their teams, but in the end Lou and Nick both agree, any win for Chicago is a good thing.

Lou and Nick have One Dream – and that’s to attend The Crosstown Classic together at Comiskey Park (Lou won’t call it anything else) on Sunday, July 7th and to each bring a family member with them make  it a perfect day! Help us get them there!
