A couple of Vegreville residents are off to Edmonton in the hopes of raising funds for the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton and, potentially, break the World Record for the Longest Baseball Game ever.
Making a difference, one swing at a time.
That’s the mantra of 56 players and countless volunteers as they embark on what’s sure to be a grueling test of endurance and determination, all to raise funds for patients and their families at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton and, potentially, break the World Record for the Longest Baseball Game ever.
Vegreville’s Dean Brooks will be one of the players taking part in the record attempt which gets underway tomorrow at the Edmonton Ball Park.
He says the game will feature plenty of current and former regional talent.
Brooks talks about what the players will be in for.
He says for anybody looking to help the cause, funds are still being raised online.
The first pitch of the four-day game will be tossed tomorrow at 11am with the game spanning into Monday, September 5th at 1pm.
For fans looking to cheer the teams on, there is no ticket cost but organizers are requesting admission by donation.
**Update: According to Dean Brooks, any donations made from September 1st to September 7th will be matched by an Anonymous Donor.
