Baseball Team Raises Money For Trip

The Blue Colts men’s baseball team is attempting to raise money to go to the Ripken Experience Tournament in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The team is using the website Snapraise.com to accept donations for the trip.

Head coach Chris Mooney said, “On our site, we have a donation goal. There is a list of what different donations can go for. One covers the fee of the tournament. Another covers the hotel. The page includes a short, 28-second video of the team asking people to donate or, if they cannot, share the video on social media.

“Each player was required to find 20 emails of friends, family and former coaches. After retrieving the emails, they would send out an automated email with a link to the page for them to donate.”

Mooney also said, “The trip would be six days and five nights. It will be during our spring break, so it’s perfect timing. It’s teams from all over the country. Teams from our conference go too, but we don’t play them.”

Those interested in supporting the team can visit their Snapraise page at www.snap-raise.com/fundraisers/middlesex-county-college-baseball-2019?share_type=twitter.
