The Second Annual Children’s Fund Baseball Classic will be held at AT&T Field, home of the Chattanooga Lookouts, on March 4.
The purpose of the Catoosa County Children’s Fund is to provide Catoosa County School children and families with short-term needs such as food, clothing, shelter, dental and medical care, educational related supplies or fees, or short-term emergency needs in an effort to develop their physical, mental, and emotional health and welfare.
Last year’s games in the first Children’s Fund Baseball Classic were some of the highest attended games in AT&T Field history, officials said. LFO defeated Southeast Whitfield in game one. In game two, Gordon Lee defeated Heritage.
The Classic this year will feature three games. In game one, LFO High School will play Ridgeland High School at 11 a.m. In game two, Ringgold High School will make its Children’s Fund debut, taking on Northwest Whitfield High School at 1:30 p.m. And in game three, Heritage High School will play Gordon Lee High School at 4 p.m. The gates will open at 10 a.m., and there will be a silent auction at the beginning of each game.
All monies raised will be donated to the Catoosa County Children’s Fund. Tickets can be purchased at the Catoosa County Board of Education, Catoosa County Sherriff’s Office, or from the LFO/Heritage/Ringgold baseball teams. Tickets will be $5 per person.
"Please plan to join us for this fun family day," officials said.
