The Purple Eagle’s varsity softball team is hosting a Strike Out Cancer Game on Monday, May 2 at 7:15 p.m. versus Medina.
The softball boosters will be collecting donations at the game to be donated to the Knights-Kaderli Fund, a local organization that helps those who are fighting cancer.
Students will be wearing special t-shirts at school and pre-game on Monday and those attending the game will have an opportunity to fill out a card with the name of someone who they are “going to bat for,” honoring those who are battling, have battled, or who have lost their life to the disease.
The game will be held under the lights on the varsity softball field, located behind the football stadium.
A large crowd was on hand for the Albion softball team’s first “Strike Out Cancer” benefit game as rival Medina provided the opposition. Here Albion captains Leah Pritchard, Aly Knaak and Kenzi Hapeman display the special t-shits the Purple Eagles wore during pregame warmups.
Shown here is a portion of the large crowd. The pre game ceremonies had players and those in the crowd display cards with the names of those they are “Going To Bat For” who are cancer survivors, those battling cancer and those who have passed away due to cancer. Donations were also collected which will be given to the Knights-Kaderli Memorial Fund which benefits Orleans residents and families who are battling cancer.
