MEMPHIS, Tennessee – Friday night was an eventful night at AutoZone Park, as the Memphis Redbirds welcomed the 10 millionth fan in the history of AutoZone Park, as well as President and Mrs. Carter for the conclusion of Habitat for Humanity’s Carter Work Project.

The Summitt family from Jonesboro, Arkansas was lucky number 10 million to come to AutoZone Park since the downtown ballpark opened in 2000. Father, Kerry, mother, Georgia, daughter, Sydney (12), and son, Layne (9) were upgraded to the Cardinals Suite for the game, complete with food and drink, threw out a first pitch, got to take first and second bases during groundscrew work in between innings and get autographs on the field after the game. The family also watched that night’s fireworks show from the dugout.

Prior to the game, President and Mrs. Carter were at the ballpark for the closing ceremony of Habitat for Humanity’s Carter Work project, which took place in Memphis that week. President and Mrs. Carter met with both the Memphis Redbirds and the Nashville Sounds, and then gave a speech on the concourse of the ballpark.
