Sluggers to host Strike Out Breast Cancer event

The Summit City Sluggers Travel Baseball Organization will host a Strike Out Breast Cancer event on June 9 at Homier Park, Huntington, to raise funds for breast cancer research.

The event is being held in partnership with the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer with a goal of raising more than $2,000.

Each travel team will play a baseball game during the day. The day will also feature raffles and prizes and a radio DJ will broadcast from the park. Breast cancer survivors will be recognized prior to the start of the last game.

Admission is by donation, with proceeds going to breast cancer research.

To participate, contact Mark DeLaGarza at 402-0789, Steve Devine at 405-7742 or Beth West at 578-0639.
