Fulfilling the Ball Dude Dream

Last night Honorary Ball Dude Mark Almer kicked off his retirement from the Roseville Fire Department in style. Growing up in the Bay Area he remembers listening to announcer Lon Simmons with his grandfather and dreaming of being a Ball Dude. Last night, that dream came true. Congratulations and good luck Mark your new adventure.


My son Jacob, a travel baseball player, is 8 years old and a huge giants fan. We will be visiting AT&T Park for the second time in two years, next month. GO GIANTS !!

I want to extend a tremendous THANK YOU to Sue Petersen and Ally Moyes with the San Francisco Giants for helping make my lifelong dream come true on Monday evening. Every single person I came in contact with in the organization is absolutely top-notch professional and SO nice.

Again, thank you so much. I’ll remember this forever.

Mark Almer

A great retirement gift for a great person. Mark, it was an honor working with you….Terry
