This preseason, Parkland senior pitcher, Michael Jenkins' father passed away after battling pancreatic cancer. Some of the Emmaus baseball players went to the viewing for Mr. Jenkins and immediately wanted to do something to help the family and offer their support in a meaningful way. While we are all opponents on the baseball field, each and every one of us is on the same team against cancer. Unfortunately, there are more players than just Michael Jenkins whose family members are negatively impacted by cancer each season. Our league has many great players, coaches, family members, and members of the community. It is time that we come together as teammates to do our part and play against cancer.
This year, on April 22, all the EPC teams are playing a league game on a Saturday and this will be our Strike Out Cancer Game for all teams that want to participate. Players of participating teams are seeking donors to pledge for every offensive hit and strikeout from their pitching staff. All of the proceeds will go to the Lustgarten Foundation for pancreatic cancer research.
In this fundraising campaign, everyone wins. Our players will play their best for reasons way more important than batting averages and ERA's. The performance of our players will raise money and awareness for the Lustgarten Foundation. Lastly, while we battle on the playing field, our programs will support one another in this effort. We will come together as a league and show that we are all on the same side as we attempt to Strike Out Cancer.
