First fundraiser for Chilliwack’s college baseball crew

While the team plays its first home games this weekend at Fairfield Island, a fundraiser golf tournament at the Falls is in the works.

Chilliwack’s new Canadian College Baseball Conference team is hosting a fundraiser golf tournament Sept. 25 at The Falls Golf Club.

For $150, golfers will get 18 holes (with a golf cart), a steak/salmon buffet dinner and a shot at prizes.

The event includes a guest speaker.

Kevin Williams is the director of business and corporate relations for Major League Baseball’s Seattle Mariners, and should have some interesting thoughts.

Coaches and players from the team will circulate throughout the day, including head coach Shawn Corness.

“I think it’s going to be fun to talk baseball and talk to people about our program, our vision and where we want to go with things,” he said. “Getting to meet new people who may support the program, that’s exciting and I’m looking forward to it.”

For more info, email golftournament@theyard.email or phone Sharan Narang at 778-878-7285.

 

— The team sees its first fall-ball action Saturday with back-to-back games against the Vancouver Island Baseball Institute. First pitch is 1 p.m. at Fairfield Island.

See next Wednesday’s Progress sports section for more on the team, including a look at its uniform and logo.
