Since our founding in 1993, playing baseball The Angels Way has proven successful for hundreds of players that have gone on to play the game at the college and professional level. Our goal has always been to provide players with the highest level of coaching while striving to maintain an affordable cost to Angel families. The Columbia Angels are asking for your support of our program and players by making a donation to our Annual 100 Inning Marathon Game.
The Marathon Game will be our primary fundraiser taking place each spring. It’s a great way to raise money for the Angels, but also a great way to get to know more families and players in the organization. We are looking forward to a great event!
What is it?
The 100 Inning Marathon Game is becoming the fall fundraiser for the Columbia Angels organization. We will divide our players into 6-8 teams who play against each other for 100 innings.
***Also, this year we will have special guest Lynn Vanlandingham from V Tool Tournaments who will be speaking to parents and players at noon about the college recruiting process.
When is it?
Sunday, February 28, 2016 beginning at 9:00am and ending at around 3:00pm. The game will be played at the Rabb Rd Practice Fields at 1216 Rabb Rd Fresno, TX 77545.
How does it work?
Each batter will assume a 3 ball 2 strike count when they reach the plate in order to speed up the game. We will be using a squish ball to avoid any injuries and limit the number of home runs. Players will play 100 innings of baseball.
What do the players need to do?
Between now and February 28th players are asked to secure sponsors that will pledge $$ for each inning that they play that day. Sponsors may donate a flat fee if they prefer. Sponsor forms and money are turned in the day of the event.
We will also have a concession stand with drinks, snacks, hamburgers, and hot dogs.
