Baseball Teams Up With Shriners Children's Hospital for 2009 Season (2/17/2009)
The LSUS Baseball program has teamed up with the Shriners Children’s Hospital for the 2009 season in an effort to raise money for a charitable cause.
During each home game at Pilot Field, fans have the opportunity to purchase raffle tickets in a 50-50 split-pot promotion with half of the money going to charity and the other half to the winner of the raffle.
Last weekend during the William Carey Series, LSUS welcomed Bo Boyd to Pilot Field for the ceremonial first pitch in Saturday’s doubleheader. Boyd, who has cerebral palsy, is an avid Pilots fan and was the Shriners Hospital “Volunteer of the Year” for 2008.
So far this season, the team has collected over $250 for the hospital through seven home games.
Raffle tickets can be purchased through the first four innings, with the split-pot winner being announced in the bottom of the fifth inning. Tickets are $1 for one ticket and $5 for ten tickets.
Don’t miss your chance to come out and support the LSUS baseball team, as well as help raise money for a good cause.
