Pribyl Power

Trevor Pribyl helps at the fastpitch station by throwing by throwing a few fastballs himself to return them to the starting point.

Maple Lake Ambassadors Lori Elsenpeter, Courtney Klingelhoets and Blair Stewig sold concessions during Trevor Pribyl’s benefit on Sunday.

Brothers Trevor Pribyl, Porter Pribyl and Zachery Pribyl sing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh inning stretch of the Maple Lake Lakers’ game against the Loretto Larks at Irish Stadium. Trevor also had the opportunity to throw out the first pitch for the second time this season. He returned the favor by making bracelets for each Laker player featuring his number.

Hundreds of people streamed into Irish Stadium before the Maple Lake Lakers took on the Loretto Larks. Their purpose was to support and raise money for the family of Trevor Pribyl, who was first diagnosed with a brain stem tumor three years ago.
That goal was achieved as more than $12,500 was raised.
“I’m very proud of our community,” said Tonya Klug, one of the organizers of the event. “I couldn’t believe the generosity.”
Trevor’s mom, Rachel Pribyl, couldn’t believe it either.
“There’s not even words that can explain it,” she said. “It was very, very humbling and amazing that that many people would cut their holiday weekend short to support us. It was amazing. I spent a lot of time hiding my tears behind my sunglasses.”
