94-year-old throws out pitch at Indy Indians game

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The Indianapolis Indians had a special guest pitcher Wednesday. Chalmer Springer, 94, says his dream has always been to pitch at an Indianapolis Indians game.

Springer’s friends and family told us he used to play softball in high school back in the day.

He was able to throw the pitch right down the plate in his familiar softball underhand style.

Springer worked with the Live a Dream program that helps senior citizens live out dreams they had when they were young.

The Westfield native was born in Indiana and has lived here all his life.
