It’s been a long time since the planning started but tomorrow night is the big night for The Field of Dreams out in Okotoks at Seaman Stadium, it’s a huge charity slow-pitch game and home run derby you wont want to miss
This great family event puts the Calgary Stampeders up against the Calgary Flame Alumni in what promises to be a night of great baseball fun and a lot of laughs.
At Team of Calgarian’s have been working for five months putting this together, Former Mrs. Calgary Angie Shilliday, Mr. Calgary Jeff Wilkie and Rob Laird, Jennifer Cockton, Angelique Siberman are the principals and have done a great job selling packages and sponsorships for this event.
Stampeder stars like Bo Levi Mitchell, Quinn Smith, Devone Claybrooks, Rob Cote and Derone Mayo will be swinging the lumber along with alumni greats like QB Kevin Glenn, Keon Raymond and Randy Chevier.
On the Flames roster are all time greats Lanny Mc Donald, Perry Berezan, Jim Peplinski, Joel Otto, Jamie Macoun, Bearcat Murray and one of the funniest guys I know former Hitman star Brent Krahn.
There is a meet and greet with the squads and local celebrities like your filed host Red Dawg and lot’s of local TV and radio folk.
You can grab some autographed gems and some neat memorabilia with the silent auction and win a bundle with the 50-50 draw tickets on sale.
All the money being raised from the event goes to two great charities, one if Life Choice Dynamics is an organization that transitions former CFL players from the field into employment following retirement when they hang up the helmet.
Many times retirement from sports can lead to depression, addiction and many can fall on hard times, this organization trains you to go from sport to careers away from the stadium lights.
The other Charity is CC4MS, they are a not for profit organization that helps male adult survivors of sexual abuse, the Flames have been behind this endeavor for years so it’s a great fit.
Thanks to all the great sponsors who have stepped up and especially Rob, Angie and Jeff who have done a great job in the organization of a great family night out, by the way my money is on the Stamps.
