On Sunday, the 66ers had a great event at Arrowhead Credit Union Park.
A 1 carat diamond, supplied by Redlands Jewelers was buried in the infield and found by one lucky fan after the 66ers win over the San Jose Giants. Cost to participate was $5 and participants received a pink shovel to dig. Proceeds went to Susan G. Komen for the Cure Inland Empire affiliate. Great benefit.
The posters around the park promoting the event I found amusing. On the poster was a picture of a diamond roughly the size of a clenched fist. Underneath was the caveat, “not actual size.” No, the Hope Diamond was not buried in the infield. If it was, I think it would’ve taken more than $5 to dig for it. I guess there are some people who would’ve expected a diamond that size if the poster didn’t say otherwise, but it was still amusing.
