Baseball Team Host- Strike OUT Cancer Game
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.
Over the last few weeks, players donated money to 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 evening.
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.
