The Yorkton Crush Girls Fastball organization came to bat on the weekend for the Yorkton Cardinals.
The Crush made a donation of $2700 to the cash-strapped Western Canadian Baseball League team to help it deal with at least some of its debt.
The money was from the concessions at York Lake Ball Diamonds on the weekend, most raised Sunday as the Crush hosted a fun tournament with more than 20 teams involved, meaning a full parking lot, many family members on-hand, and a busy concession.
That’s where the efforts of Samantha Hardy, Darren Kastrukoff, and Logan Ross get some extra credit, as the trio put in a very long day today at the Yorkton Crush concession making sure everyone was served. The three people are, largely, responsible for over $2700 raised through burger/drink/confectionary sales.
It also should be noted the Crush opting to turn the concession over to help the Cardinals is greatly appreciated.
“We are extremely thankful for your act of generosity and also wish to thank your volunteers for helping today as well,” said Cardinal spokesperson Mike Stackhouse. “The Cards will return the favor in the form of players working with the girls later this month and having a night at the park where all players can come on to the field and be recognized.”
