Anaheim University was invited to throw the first pitch at the July 8th home game between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Texas Rangers, two teams battling for first place in Major League Baseball's American League West. The University asked its Tuition Relief supporter and founder of the Body Glove wet suit company Bob Meistrell to do the honors on behalf of Anaheim University.
Now what made the first pitch really exciting is that following Bob's pitch an announcement was made that impacts the pocketbooks of new students enrolling at Anaheim University. The University has extended its Tuition Relief Program, reducing the tuition fee for all new online degree applicants by 50% in order to help students in these difficult economic times.
Anaheim University selected one of its valued Tuition Relief Program contributors to throw the first pitch on behalf of the University and selected Bob Meistrell, the 80-year old founder of the Body Glove. Don't let the fact that he is 80 years old fool you. Bob is in great shape and is an avid surfer and diver. How long has Bob been diving? So long that his L.A. County Diving License is #0001, and not only did he dive with Jacques Cousteau, but he has spent the 60+ years of his life helping to solve environmental issues and keep our beaches safe and clean. Anaheim University salutes Bob Meistrell and the Angels, two winners who have demonstrated their commitment to the community.
Thank you to all of our Anaheim University, Body Glove and Angels supporters who came out to see Bob throw a fastball.
