Purcell’s two baseball games this Saturday with Asher and Newcastle will be fund-raisers for the non-profit Kids Joining Eternity.
The 12 noon game will pit Purcell against Asher with the nightcap against Newcastle starting at 5 p.m.
Purcell Assistant Coach Bryan Young lost a son, Mattox, to Trisomy.
March 18th is Trisomy 18 Awareness Day.
Trisomy 18 is represented by the color purple. Each player and coach will receive a purple jersey to wear during the game with a patch in memory of Mattox on the front and the number 18 on the back,” Purcell Head Coach Cole Sharp said. “We will use this day to honor Coach Young’s son along with all other infants and children gone too soon,” Sharp continued.
All donations this year are being presented to Kids Joining Eternity (KJE). KJE is a non-profit organization that helps families in Oklahoma going through infant and child loss by providing resources and events for families.
There will be a donation jar at the front gate.
“We will also pass around donation buckets during both of the games. If you would like to donate via check please make it payable to Purcell Baseball, and the baseball program will make a single donation to KJE with the money raised,” Sharp concluded.
