The high school baseball team played their first
ever Strikeout Cancer Game on September 27th at Veteran’s
Park. The marching band, cheerleaders, and numerous fans cheered the team
on as they played to raise money for the STHS Pink Out fund. Proceeds will
benefit breast cancer research.
Breast cancer survivors Tammi Hammaker (STHS alum)
and local resident Joyce Ashe were chosen as honorees to throw out the game’s
first pitch. STHS Biology teacher Rob McDonald also volunteered his services to
be the home plate umpire for the evening.

participate in the team’s fall camp and the fundraising game. Fans also donated
money to participate in various games and concessions throughout the entire
The STHS baseball coaching staff would like to thank
the umpires, parents, players, marching band, cheerleaders, fans, and students
for volunteering their time to make this a special event.
