FIRST ANNUAL HIT-A-THON
 
Open Now!
Starting April 24 we are accepting  donations to our first ever HIT-A-THON in order to raise money for the team. 
 
Each player will hit 5 softballs counting the cumulative total of our longest two balls. As a sponsor for one of our players, you may pledge an amount per foot achieved. (i.e. 10 cents per foot) or a lump sum donation (i.e. $20 donation). The max distance a player can attain with their two longest balls is approximately 400 feet.
We are 100% self funded so any amount is greatly appreciated. Pledges will be collected after our Hit-A-Thon April 24 or a flat donation may be sent in earlier.  Find our full notice in the documents below.
