From NTCC Reports
The Northeast Texas Community College (NTCC) Eagles baseball and softball teams will host a special Ks for Kids Day at the Ballpark on Saturday, Feb. 18. The day will begin with a free kid’s camp followed by home doubleheaders for NTCC baseball and softball.
In addition to offering a day of fun for the whole family, this event will mark the official kickoff of the Ks for Kids campaign, which will raise funds for the Women and Children's Center at Titus Regional Medical Center. This marks the second year of the program, which raised more than $59,000 last year.
"The response to Ks for Kids was overwhelming last year and we look forward to being a part of it again this year," NTCC Athletic Director and Head Baseball coach Josh Stewart said. "We think this will be a great way to bring awareness to the cause and bring families out for a fun day at the ballpark."
The free camp will begin at 10 a.m. and will offer instruction for all ages in both baseball and softball. Campers will have the opportunity to meet and work with NTCC players and coaches. Space is limited, so please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your spot. Walk-ups are welcome as space permits.
Eagles Baseball kicks off its double header at 12 p.m. against Bossier Parish Community College. The first softball game begins at 1 p.m. against Grayson County College. The first 100 kids ages 12 and under through the gate get a free Ks for Kids mini bat courtesy of D-Bat and Elliot Motors. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students. A portion of the day's proceeds will benefit the Ks for Kids Campaign.
The Titus Regional Medical Center Foundation will have a booth set up with information about Ks for Kids. Those interested in supporting the campaign can make their donations or complete a pledge card at this time. Full concessions will be available throughout the day.
