May 27th will be another special day for the Lethbridge baseball community. The 4th annual Tanner Craswell and Mitch MacLean memorial game will take place at Spitz Stadium. Like last year, anyone who are alumni of the Vauxhall Jets, where Craswell played for two years, the Prairie Baseball Academy where both Tanner and Mitch played, or the Lethbridge Bulls where both played for one summer is invited to participate in the alumni game at 5:00pm. At 7:40pm, the 2015 versions of the Lethbridge Bulls and the Vauxhall Jets will hit the field for an exhibition game. It will kick off the 2015 Bulls Season and mark the end of the 2015 Jets season. Last year the turnout was fantastic. Some close friends of Tanner and Mitch made the trip from the East Coast all the way out to Lethbridge to participate in the alumni game. It is a great event where former teammates of the boys can hit the field again, and share stories and memories they have of the boys.
For anyone interested in attending the 2015 alumni game or the Bulls Vs. Jets game tickets are $30, which gets you a ticket to the game and a steak dinner on the Bulls patio. Tickets can be purchased at the Spitz Stadium office. You can also contact the office at 403-320-2025.
All proceeds from the game will go towards the TCMM Scholarship. The scholarship is in place for young athletes who attend any of the three organizations the boys represented in their time in Alberta. It is an extremely enjoyable evening and it helps raise funds for a great cause. For more information on how to donate please click here.
