The athletes were a “hit”, the food was delicious, and the crowd…well, they were wild with excitement.
The 3rd Annual Baseball Hit-a-thon and Pack the Bleachers Event last Saturday was full of fun and family. Each athlete stayed at bat until they hit 10 fair balls; all while being cheered on by the crowd of spirited fans.
As part of the Hit-a-thon, families and guests raised funds for the Spirit League non-profit and wow, you were so generous! Your donations – big and small – totaled over $11,000; exceeding our goal of $10,000. Your donations will go towards rental of sports fields/courts, partial funding of our scholarship program and other League programs.

We also welcomed several special needs service providers to share their services with our families. These guests included:
Thank you to all athletes, families, providers and guests for joining us on our biggest day of the year. We were so happy to celebrate with you.
