Baseball banquet hits a home run

Baseball banquet hits a home run

On Monday, January 26, supporters of the baseball program filled the commons for the annual banquet.

The dinner and silent auction were in the works for about three months. To get support and donations, members of the team went to local businesses that were more than willing to help them out. The team also sold dinner tickets for $10 a few weeks prior to the event.

In addition to getting support and donations, members of the baseball team helped make the banquet a success by serving food, taking tickets and cleaning tables.

The food and all of the baskets were donated. The baskets were purchased or bid on and varied in price and content from $12 for a Dunkin’ Donuts mug to $550 worth of concrete labor or welding supplies, with all of the proceeds going towards the baseball program.

“We raised about $7000 last year, and I think it was pretty good,” said Braden Bingham, senior and member of the team. “We did a couple of tournaments in St. George and it helped pay for that.”

According to Bingham, the money received will go towards purchasing new uniforms, covering any additional costs of the new field, equipment, and anything else the team may need.

Parents and other members of the Fremont community enjoyed their time at the dinner and silent auction.

Bryce Clark, father of Tyler Clark, sophomore on the swim and baseball team, was incredibly happy with the banquet and what it means for the boys.

“It’s awesome,” he said. “The food was great, the boys all helped and it was a good, a great turn out.”

About the Author

There are very few people that truly understand all dis. I have often been referred to as the shy, smart, pretty girl, but let’s be honest, that’s just boring and incredibly one dimensional. My name is Alicia Anderson. There are three things I can’t live without: ice cream, chocolate, and, most importantly, Captain America. I love telling stories with ridiculous actions, music from before 2008, quoting movies, and laughing until I have completed a sufficient core workout. Classical ballet, drawing, and cleaning are my hobbies and if you don’t already think that your grandmother and I would be the best of friends, here are two more reasons. Social media and I have never met and I never hesitate to share my strong opinion based on observations and logic. I also love hearing others’ opinions and thoughts, their hobbies and interests. Everyone is outstanding and special, and when I learn phenomenal things about someone, I want everyone else to know just how amazing he or she really is and being on The Paw Print staff has given me that ability. I thoroughly enjoy writing about the incredible people I have the opportunity of meeting. I may be be pretty and I may be smart, but my candor, my confident and outgoing personality, and my obnoxiously Puerto Rican sass make me the special person I am, and, as aforementioned, you are special, and I want people to know it. I write for you. Thanks for reading!
