South Florida Hooters has teamed up with Valarie’s House to give a local teen the opportunity to throw out the “first pitch” at a Spring Training baseball game. Jayden H. threw out the first pitch at the Boston Red Sox Game on March 2.

The 16-year-old, who attends Island Coast High School in Cape Coral was joined by several Hooters Girls on the field.

“Every Spring Training season we enjoy the opportunity to sponsor and be involved with the game day activations including the experience to throw out the first pitch. We enjoy sharing this experience with teens from our community. Watching the kids on the field throw out the first pitch and cheering them on is always a favorite of the Hooters Girls, Hootie and our store managers who are in attendance,” said LTP Management Director of Marketing Kristi Quarles. For many years, Hooters has partnered with Valarie’s House including monthly visits by Fort Myers Hooters Employees.
