(WDEF) Root, root, rooting for the home team meant so much more at Friday night's Lookouts game at AT&T Field.
    It was Down Syndrome Awareness Night.
    Pre-purchased tickets benefited the Chattanooga Down Syndrome Society.
    It supports local families and individuals with DS.
    Families took part in a short parade on the field and threw out of the first pitch of the game.
    Andrea Holmes is the president of the Chattanooga Down Syndrome Society.  She explained, "We have sold about 600 tickets to this game tonight, 615 I believe.  And so all of the families were able to walk around the baseline and display our cute little kids and our adults and have a little fun tonight before the game."
     The Chattanooga Down Syndrome Society hosts Awareness Night at the Lookouts in part to help secure AT&T Field as the venue for the 2013 Buddy Walk.
     That's scheduled for September 28, 2013.
