OGDEN -- Robbie Parker strode out onto the field, halfway between the mound and home plate, two young blonde-haired daughters flanking him on either side. Splashed throughout the green grandstand surrounding him were seas of pink T-shirts, and the people wearing them rose to their feet and cheered with sun-stained mountains hanging in the sky beyond the rust-brick buildings in the background. Parker's youngest daughter, Samantha, 4, threw a ceremonial first pitch, and Madeline, 5, followed. Samantha bounced up and down, excitement clutching her. After heading back to the mound to throw his own first pitch, Parker knelt on the green grass and hugged his daughters. The crowd continued to cheer. "That was really special," Parker said. "I took them out and was practicing with them today."But this night was about the daughter who wasn't there -- the one who couldn't throw a first pitch, the one who couldn't be embraced in her father's arms. Emilie, 6, was killed last December in the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that took the lives of 26 people, 20 of them children, and the Ogden Raptors on Saturday were dedicating the night to her.
