SCOTTSDALE – I was thrilled to see that my favorite lemonade salesman – Derrick – was at the Giants-Dodgers game this weekend.
My son and I met Derrick when we came to spring training two years ago. He has a catchy and memorable sales pitch:
“Lemonade, lemonade, like Grandma made. I KNOW you want it,” he shouts. Or “I got some cotton CANDY”!
I spoke with Derick during the game. He told me he’s been at spring training for 26 years. He has a growing fan base.
“If you attend any of the spring baseball games, concerts or other professional events, there is a good chance you have seen or heard of lemonade vendor Derrick Moore,” according to a local TV report. “Moore said he is out to make people laugh.”
A vendor can sell as much as 150 cups of lemonade per event, but Derrick can sell twice as much, the report said.
