Baseball - Tue, Mar. 5, 2013
This weekend marks the home opening Mid-South Conference series for Georgetown College baseball. Helping to mark such an occasion will be Neace Lukens' Bryan Raisor. The managing director of the Richmond and Lexington branches for the 15th largest US insurance agency, specializing in risk management and Consulting as well as employee benefit solutions, will throw out the first pitch Saturday.
Raisor became familiar with Georgetown College and the baseball program because of his connection with the late Robbie Rowe. Rowe was passionate about Tiger baseball and passed away Jan. 4, 2012. He worked for Neace Lukens, which was looking for a way to honor his memory. This past summer it donated money in Rowe's name for the naming of the press box at Robert N. Wilson Field, the home of the Tigers.
Now Raisor will be in attendance to help Georgetown in a big three-game series with Lindsey Wilson College. The two teams vied for conference dominance a season ago. The Blue Raiders won the regular season, while Georgetown was the tournament champions.
"This will be a huge weekend," said GC coach Micah Baumfeld. "We are really excited to have Brian in attendance to throw out the first pitch before our doubleheader Saturday at noon."
Raisor is a certified insurance counselor and certified workers compensation counselor. He has also been the sales leader for Lexington the past three years. He lives in Lexington with his wife and two daughters. He is active in community service and is a member of Northeast Christian Church.
