STAC Baseball to Honor Veterans

The St. Thomas Aquinas Baseball team will be hosting their annual “Wounded Warrior Day” at Provident Bank Park in Pomona, NY on April 22 at 11 a.m. in a doubleheader vs. LIU POST. The two clubs will be sporting special camouflage hats. The hats, along with “Wounded Warrior” camouflage t-shirts, will be on sale at the game for $20 and all proceeds will go to the “Wounded Warrior Project” which helps Veterans that come home from war with aid they desperately need. STAC is also teaming up with fans, students, and faculty in a pledge that for every run the team scores against LIU POST, $1 will also be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project fund.

Just this past week in their series against Mercy College, STAC honored those battling or survivors of prostate cancer. The team wore baby blue stirrups and swung baby blue bats in honor of those who suffer from prostate cancer. For every hit STAC got in the four game series, $1 was donated to “Ed Randall’s Bat for a Cure” foundation.

STAC currently sits at 7-5 in the East Coast Conference and 18-10 overall, good enough for second place behind Dowling College. LIU POST remains .500 on the year in ECC play and 11-14 overall, finding themselves in fourth place in the conference.
