FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: August 20, 2021
Little Rock, AR: On Tuesday, August 24th, Kerry McCoy will throw the first pitch as the Travelers host the Corpus Christi Hooks at Dickey Stephens Ball Park. McCoy is the owner of FlagandBanner.com and OurCornerMarket.com, host of Up In Your Business with Kerry McCoy radio show and podcast, and publisher of Brave Magazine. She purchased the Taborian Hall in the early 90s and is known among Arkansas preservationists for her renovation of that historic site. Born in North Little Rock, McCoy is honored to return to her home city for the ritual of throwing the first pitch to start the game. Said McCoy, “I was touched to be asked to participate in such a longstanding ceremony. It feels like, ‘hometown-girl-makes-good,’ and that kind of recognition is a powerful affirmation. I just hope I don’t drop the ball…pun intended!”
In business since 1975, McCoy has grown her small flag shop into a multi-business enterprise that is still expanding, recently opening a satellite office in Miami, Florida. Her website carries over 20,000 products including flags, poles, hardware, accessories, banners, bunting, clothing, home decor and more. The company also manufactures custom flags, banners, and other custom products. Visit their historic showroom located at 800 W. 9th Street in downtown Little Rock, Arkansas.
