Baseball Raised Money While Serving Community

rp_primary_JD_clinicHAMBURG, NY – Several members of the Hilbert College baseball team paired their baseball knowledge and skills with a fundraising project while completing a sports management class assignment.

In all areas, it was a win-win situation as $720 was collected on behalf of the Juvenile Diabetes Association.

Five Hilbert baseball players – Paul Wujek, Matt Goraj, Tom Irish, Tyler Roth and Kevin Moore – organized a baseball clinic which ran from 9 am to 1 pm March 30.

The Hawks promoted the event, coordinated the day’s schedule and served as instructors for the 36 participants.  The attendees shuffled between a fielding, pitching, and two different hitting (t-work/inside a cage hitting off machine) stations.  The day ended with a four-team whiffle ball tournament.
