Tonight the Lethbridge Bulls play a very important game to our organization, as well as the Vauxhall Academy and the Prairie Baseball Academy. Every year, the Bulls face the Vauxhall Academy Jets in a fundraiser game in memory of Tanner Craswell and Mitch MacLean. This game benefits the TCMM Memorial Fund, which was originally used to support the families of Craswell and MacLean after their tragic passing in December of 2012.
Now, the TCMM Memorial Fund is used to bring aspiring players to Alberta to live our their baseball dreams. The fund focusses primarily on ball players from the maritimes, as Tanner and Mitch were originally from Prince Edward Island. We miss them, and we remember them by giving back to baseball players coming to Alberta. We were unable to play the TCMM Memorial Game in 2020, so this year's fundraiser game is especially important.
Tickets are $10 each, with no assigned seating. Book your tickets on our website, or call the office at (403) 320-2025. Come out and support your boys, while remembering two of our legacies.
The sun was shining, there were the numbers 6 & 13 laid on the second base and short stop positions, fans and friends poured into the Stadium as the opening ceremonies of the 9th annual TCMM Memorial Game began. Spitz Stadium saw some familiar faces as the families and friends of the Vauxhall Academy Jets, Prairie Baseball Academy, and the Lethbridge Bulls showed their support and remembrance for Tanner Craswell and Mitch MacLean.
Over 200 supporters came out to watch the game, and beneath the masks we were all smiles. The Vauxhall Academy Jets took a 10-5 win over the Bulls, holding onto their lead for the duration of the game.
We may have lost the game, but the real win was getting the chance to play for their Angels in the Infield for the first time in two years!
