Admissions to the games are free, but the Tigers are asking for freewill donations at the gate, with all proceeds going to support Mt. Hope Sanctuary in McPherson. There will be a concessions stand where the Tigers will be selling snacks and drinks as well as some CCC Baseball gear. Proceeds from all concessions stand sales will also go to help support Mt. Hope Sanctuary.
CCC Head Coach, Derk Kremer, who is in his second year as the Tiger skipper, hopes that this will be an opportunity for his team to make a positive impact in the McPherson community, and that the guys will see that there more in life beyond the game of baseball. Mt. Hope Sanctuary, Inc. is a non-profit, Christian ministry providing transitional housing, life-changing programs and support services to single women and their children.
