“By hosting the volunteer parties we get the chance to reward those who work hard for the love of the sport,” said Brendan Puthoff, co-owner of Third Base. “High Five Events and Third Base are local companies who love catering to Austinites who enjoy active lifestyles. We jumped at the opportunity to partner with such a great organization.”
