Retired Hanford workers may bring their families to Saturday’s Dust Devil game and fireworks display in Pasco for free.
Nuclear Care Partners, a home nursing company serving ill Hanford workers, is sponsoring the game and giving away the tickets for Atomic Worker Appreciation Night.
The first pitch will be thrown by Ken Vails, the former physician assistant who helped care for the Atomic Man, Harold McCluskey. McCluskey was sprayed with radioactive americium, acid and shards of glass in a 1976 explosion at Hanford.
The pitch will be in memory of McClusky and to honor the contributions and sacrifices of other former Hanford nuclear reservation workers.
To request tickets, call Nuclear Care Partners at 509-378-3939.
Tickets may be picked up at the company’s Richland office or when arriving at Gesa Stadium on Saturday. The baseball game starts at 7:15 p.m.
