College baseball league to host Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer event

The Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League will work with Go4theGoal Foundation to help strike out pediatric cancer this summer. Its inaugural Lace Up 4 Pediatric Cancer event will take place June 26-28 on fields around the East End, all in an effort to raise funds and awareness for the New Jersey-based not-for-profit organization.

The 2015 schedule includes games in all seven communities over a single weekend, during which time all HCBL players will wear Go4theGoal’s trademark yellow shoelaces. Seven community businesses have volunteered to sponsor the purchase of these laces, raising more than $1,000 for the cause. Funds from additional shoelace sales will add to that total.

In addition, players will wear the yellow laces at the 2015 HCBL All-Star Game, to be held Wednesday, July 15, at Baseball Heaven in Yaphank.
