Keith Jorgensen Memorial Golf Tournament Fundraiser

PBA held its Fourth Annual Keith Jorgensen Memorial Golf Tournament over the weekend and it can only be considered a great success despite the unusual circumstances we are facing due to COVID-19.  The golf tournament usually held in May was able to happen with 117 alumni and sponsors taking part. Prairie Baseball was able to make this happen with no shortage of hard work to ensure the safety of all in attendance.


Rob Greeno played a major role in organizing the Golf Tournament and was very pleased with how the weekend went, “It was great to see so many alumni as well as other coorporate and business individuals supporting the current players. We raised a lot of money for the program.” The plan is to have next years tournament in the fall as well. “I think we have a better chance for good weather when we have it in September, everybody seemed happy to be out. We had great weather all weekend and the online format was a success with our 50/50.”


Here are the winners of the 2020 Keith Jorgensen Memorial Golf Tournament:

First Place - With a score of 51 The SunLife Team! Members Don Groves, Chad Layton, Ryan Gorham, and Scott Waltz are the winners of 4 free rounds at the Paradise Valley Golf and Country Club and 4 PBA UnderArmour Golf Shirts.

The winner of the 50/50 was Alumni and former PBA Coach Omar Kadir! He is the winner of the grand prize of $2215.

This would not have been possible without combined efforts from the Prairie Baseball Academy Alumni Association, Under the Lights Sports and Entertainment, and of course the Prairie Baseball Academy itself. The current PBA players were an integral part of the weekend, setting up for the event, recording the contests on the course, and selling 50/50 tickets.
