Community Aug 27, 2018 Ancaster News

Ancaster Baseball hosted its annual 24-Hour Charity Baseball Game at the picturesque Veterans Memorial Field. From noon on Saturday, Aug. 18, through to noon the next day, hundreds of players competed around the clock in support of Ancaster Community Services (ACS).

The event raised $1,800 in registrations, which Ancaster Baseball matched, for a total donation to ACS of $3,600.

Players aged five to 75 participated in over 200 innings and at no point did the game stop over 24 hours, despite a dense fog.

At its height, over 100 players were participating on two fields.

Over 100 home runs were sent sailing over the fence. Overnight, one diamond was covered in tents for those who needed a short nap between innings.

At least 10 kids played the entire 24-hour stretch.

Volunteers provided breakfast and movies were shown outdoors from dusk to 1:30 a.m.

Event organizers wish to thank the entire Ancaster Baseball executive and Chris Davies, Colin Lock, Eloi Raposo, Clayton Hudder, Ryan Hall, Justin Campbell, Aaron Gerrard, Andy Pridmore, Nick Davies, Kristin Shuttleworth, Todd Lowe and all the other volunteers who made the event possible.
