Help Support 16u McCormack at PGF Nationals
As many of you know our players have dedicated their time, effort and lives to the game of softball. Their goal has been to compete at the highest level and reach their full potential as an individuals and as part of a team. Last month a portion of that dream came true for some of our players when their team, Bat Company 16U – McCormack, qualified for the most elite National Tournament in the country in Huntington Beach, CA. Premier Girls Fastpitch (PGF) is a tournament organization that conducts regional qualifying tournaments for a chance to play in the National Tournament from July 30-August 5. Out of over 1600 teams that compete to qualify in the nation only 115 actually do at the 16U level. BC 16u-McCormack achieved their goal and are fortunate enough to be one of those 115.
This is the first team in Bat Company organization history to ever qualify for this tournament, not to mention only the third organization in Oregon over the past 9 years to do so. Since qualifying for this tournament is so rare the team didn’t budget and account for the cost when it was formed last August. This is where they could use your help so they can see their great achievement through.
There are 14 players on this team. The per player cost for this tournament is $715. Costs include the following:
Tournament Entry fees
Hotel rooms for the team
Travel costs (2 team vans and gas)
Food costs for 7 days
If you are in the position to help 16u-McCormack represent the Bat Company and the state of Oregon in this tournament they would greatly appreciate it. Any amount donated will help, whether it is $1 or $100. If you donate before July 21st they will place your name on their “PGF Team Banner” that we will hang on their dugout for each tournament game they play while in Huntington Beach and in the BC facility permanently at the conclusion of the tournament.
If you would like to make a donation, you can make a check out to The Bat Company and drop off at the facility or mail to 22768 Johnson Road, West Linn OR 97068. Please memo “16u McCormack PGF.” If you want to donate via credit card you may do so by emailing email@example.com with the amount you wish to donate and you will receive an email with a link where you can pay directly.
