Baylor School and the MaryEllen Locher Foundation are sponsoring a HITS for HOPE Softball Tournament at Warner Park on April 5-6.
Sixteen teams from the southeast have already committed to playing in this first time softball tournament in honor of students in our region whose parents are fighting breast cancer.
The MaryEllen Locher Foundation is a national college scholarship program for children who have either lost a parent to breast cancer, or have a parent who is a breast cancer survivor. Baylor is specifically honoring senior softball player Sarah Moore, whose mother Kelly, is in an ongoing battle with the disease.
Anyone interested in donating to the Foundation, or becoming a tournament field or dugout sponsor, should contact Baylor softball coach Kelli Smith at 423 267-8506, ext. 597. Donations may be mailed c/o Kelli Smith, Baylor School, 171 Baylor School Road. Please make checks payable to: MEL Foundation.
