Just received this release from The Brew Crew, sterling PR director for the Akron Racers, and thought I'd pass it along: AKRON -- The 2005 National Pro Fastpitch (NPF) champion Akron Racers are staging a "Championship Celebration & Barbeque" on Saturday, Sept. 10, beginning at 6 p.m. at Firestone Stadium. The Akron Racers Foundation and Caterers by Paparazzi???s are hosting the party, which will include the raising of a championship banner over the entrance to the Stadium. To reserve a ticket for the "Championship Celebration & Barbeque," call the Racers at 330-376-8188. The Racers captured their first NPF championship in thrilling fashion Aug. 28 when they rallied past the Chicago Bandits, 5-4 in eight innings, in Lisle, Ill. Akron finished the season 38-10.
