Beatty is Fan of Week for Colts-Texans
Former Kokomo resident Frank Beatty will attend the Colts-Texans game on Sunday night at Houston as a guest of NBC Sports after being picked as a Fan of the Week.
“It’s the chance of a lifetime,” Beatty said.
Beatty, who lives in Georgetown, Texas, is an avid Colts fan. NBC Sports picked two Colts fans and two Texans fans for Sunday’s game. The fans will receive tickets to the game, a behind-the-scenes look at NBC’s Sunday Night Football Bus, team gear and a private tailgate before the game. In addition, the fans can tag along as the bus makes stops around Houston beginning Friday.
Fan of the Week picks are based in part on social media activity and team pride. Beatty explained he caught NBC Sports’ eye by tweeting throughout the Broncos-Colts game on Sunday Night Football two weeks ago. He tweeted his support for the Colts and also Sunday Night Football (@SNFonNBC). He used various hashtags.
When Beatty lived in Kokomo, he managed the Delphi squad at Southside Youth Baseball League. His final year with the squad was 2004 when it posted a 22-2 record. Delphi won the Southside title and reached the final eight of the David A. Kasey Memorial Tournament before falling to eventual champion Martin Brothers of Russiaville.
Beatty’s job with DuPont took him to Texas in 2005. His Twitter handle is @styxvcopres.
