Why a baseball tournament fundraiser?
We wanted to provide the players and parents of the Houston area, and community at large with a unique and memorable event, one that will be remembered forever! In the process our players will have the opportunity to participate in a unique event and have the opportunity to earn the right to take batting practice at Minute Maid Park and be tutored by former Astros manager Phil Garner!
We are raising money for charity. What charities will benefit?
We are raising money for Candlelighters. The mission of Candlelighters is to provide emotional, educational, and practical support to children with cancer and their families. In addition, Candlelighters desires to promote childhood cancer awareness, and the need for childhood cancer education and research in the Houston community.
How do I get to take batting practice at Minute Maid Park?
The top 15 overall fundraisers will earn the opportunity to take batting practice at Minute Maid Park and be tutored by former Astros manager Phil Garner. Each of the top 15 fundraisers may bring 2 guests to watch them go for the fences! The date and time of batting practice at Minute Maid Park will be determined soon.
If you are playing with your team in the Candlelighters one-day baseball tournament at Baseball USA and are one of the top 12 overall fundraisers you will earn a ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME opportunity to take batting practice at MINUTE MAID PARK and be mentored by former Astro manager Phil Garner.
