Former T-Bones pitching great getting married on mound

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – He’s made more appearances than any other pitcher in T-Bones history, so perhaps it’s appropriate that Jonathan Krysa will be getting married on the pitching mound at CommunityAmerica Ballpark on Friday night, July 4.

The T-Bones are scheduled to play at 7:05 that night against Sioux Falls with special holiday fireworks after the game. Krysa and his fiancée, Stacy Folsom, will exchange vows during the brief intermission between the game and the fireworks.

Krysa, a Kansas City area native who pitched collegiately at Rockhurst University, played five seasons for the T-Bones, 2003-07. He holds several club career pitching records including appearances (90), games started (79), innings (547) and strikeouts (445), and he’s second in all-time wins (30).

Krysa set the team record for strikeouts in a game in 2005, when he struck out 13 batters at Calgary. In 2012 he was selected for the T-Bones 10th Anniversary Team.

Tickets are available now by calling the Providence Medical Center Box Office at CommunityAmerica Ballpark at 913-328-5618.
