Today, July 7th, fellow HH'er, my son, Tyler Berry will marry Beth Peters in Suite 22 at 6:05PM.
Strange, we know, but to truly understand this, you must start at the beginning.
Both Tyler and Beth are avid baseball fans. Tyler was born and raised in Orange County, a diehard Angels fan. He met Beth during their freshman year at Cal Lutheran University where he was majoring in Pre-Med, she in Film and Public Relations. Beth, from Dallas, has been a Texas Rangers baseball fan all her life. She attended her first Rangers game when she was about 6 months old.
Since they first met, they have been to numerous Angels games both in Anaheim and Arlington. Instead of returning to school in the fall of 2007, Tyler decided to heed the call of his country and joined the U.S. Army and is now serving as an airborne combat medic with the 173rd Airborne, with the rank of Private 1st Class, currently stationed in Germany.
He and Beth will be married in a small ceremony when he is home on leave in this July, before his unit’s expected deployment to a combat zone later this year. Since both Beth and Tyler and their families are huge fans of their teams, albeit of division rivals, a Rangers-Angels game seemed to be the perfect setting for their wedding. As mentioned above, Tyler and Elizabeth are to wed Tuesday, July 7th, 2009, at 6:05 p.m. in Suite 22 at the Angels Stadium in Anaheim, an hour prior to the Rangers-Angels game that evening.
Just an interesting tidbit: Beth’s parent’s first date was an Angels/Rangers game in Arlington.
If you happen to be at the game tonight, raise your glass towards suite 22 to toast the happy couple.
With Halo and fatherly pride,
