Alumni Classic Charity Baseball Game presented by the Walla Walla YMCA

The Alumni Classic presented by the Walla Walla YMCA is a charity baseball game hosted by the Walla Walla Sweets baseball team and Wonderboy Creative. The game, featuring DeSales and Wa-Hi alumni, will take place on July 16, 2018 at 7:00 PM in front of what should be a sold-out crowd at Borleske Stadium. The events success both on and off the field is credited to the high level of enthusiasm and participation by both current and former students, faculty, staff and administrators at Walla Walla Catholic Schools and Walla Walla Public Schools.

“The goal is to help both sides find a fun, unique way to raise needed dollars to help improve the student experience. Maybe the need is in the athletic department, maybe the need is new trombones for the music department. We don’t really have a specific fundraising goal other than to make it a large donation and to have fun with our community while doing it.”

Zachary Fraser, Walla Walla Sweets President

“I think I speak for many when I say we’re grateful to our schools for the opportunities that we were provided in our youth. As former players, we get to spend time with old friends and teammates while reliving some great memories at a beautifully renovated Borleske. Being able to do so while raising money for current students in our community is an incredible opportunity.”
