TROY —The Tri-City ValleyCats announced Thursday that they
will host a three-game series of fundraising Section II baseball at the Joseph
L. Bruno Stadium this spring. "Friday Night Lights at The Joe" will benefit the
Coaches vs. Cancer advocacy program, as well as renovations for four youth
Beginning April 26, a double-header will feature Ballston
Spa facing off against Burnt-Hills Ballston Lake at 4:30 p.m., followed by
Shenendehowa taking on Shaker at 7:30 p.m. With the same schedule the following
Friday, May 3, Fort Plain will compete with Saratoga Catholic in the first game
and Columbia will play Saratoga in the second. For the third and final Friday, which
will be exclusively dedicated to Coaches vs. Cancer, Guilderland will battle Bethlehem,
followed by Christian Brothers Academy facing Troy High.
In addition to raising funds in support of Coaches vs.
Cancer, a portion of the resources raised will go to the renovation of four
youth baseball fields. The project, now dubbed "4 in 24," will mean new sod on
the infields for the Green Island Little League, Hudson Valley Little League in
Ravena, Menands Junior Baseball and National Little League of Albany. The four
fields will also see renewed pitcher's mounds and home plates, all of which
will be completed in less than 24 hours on Friday, April 12.
The event is the first of many projects the Community
Grounds Crew, with the help of BlueShield of Northeastern New York, has planned
to undertake throughout the spring and summer months. Since its formation in
the spring of 2012, the Community Grounds Crew has helped renovate more than a
dozen youth baseball fields across the region.
"BlueShield is excited to support the field renovations
throughout our community," said Brian O'Grady, vice president of BlueShield of
Northeastern New York. "Our company takes pride in encouraging children to get
outside and play with their friends."
The projects will also be supported by the New York-Penn
League Charitable Foundation.
Leagues not chosen to benefit from the "4 in 24" program are
still eligible to receive field maintenance in months to come during the
ongoing Community Grounds Crew program efforts. Leagues interested can apply
for consideration online at: www.tcvalleycats.com.
