Alex Gordon Classic Fastpitch (2020)

  • February 18, 2019
  • MSP Team


Join us as we welcome Kansas City Royals’ Alex Gordon and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation heroes for a presentation on the field! The ceremony will immediately follow Saturday morning games. All schedules will reflect a break in game play, so all teams can attend. Teams can expect to hear from Alex Gordon and representatives from Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation on why we’re playing this weekend, grab raffle tickets for a Royals' signed jersey, as well as the opportunity for 3 teams to get autographs with Alex Gordon immediately following! (Want to know how your team can be one of the three?! KEEP READING!)

Win Big Prizes Through Team Pledges and Fundraising!

The top 3 teams that raise the most funds will have the opportunity to win various prizes which includes a Meet & Greet with Alex Gordon. Each player will take one item to have signed and will take a team picture.

To help raise funds, each Alex Gordon Classic softball team is encouraged to participate in the Champion for Kids with Cancer initiative and/or host a lemonade stand fundraiser to make a difference. Leading up to the event, turn hits, runs or strikes into lifesaving research dollars with the Champion program. It's easy! Through your personalized webpage, friends and family can make a one-time donation or pledge a dollar amount for your athletic accomplishments (ex: $2 per hit x 50 total hits = $100 for kids with cancer).

Is this the only event your team is playing in? You can also fundraise by having a lemonade stand, asking businesses to support or whatever fun team activity you can think of!

The top 2 teams that raise the most funds will win various prizes including a Meet & Greet with Alex Gordon, tickets to a Royals game and early entrance to the K on Aug 8, 2020. THE TOP FUNDRAISING TEAM WILL ENJOY A FUN TAILGATE BEFORE THE GAME! More details to come. 

All money raised before and during the Alex Gordon Classic will be donated to ALSF to help the fight against childhood cancer. ALL FUNDS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY SUNDAY, AUGUST 3rd, 2020 IN ORDER TO BE ELIGIBLE TO WIN PRIZES FOR THIS EVENT. CONTINUED DONATIONS ARE WELCOME AFTER THE DEADLINE, HOWEVER THEY WILL NOT COUNT TOWARDS YOUR TOTAL FOR PRIZE PACKAGES.

Tips and suggestions on how your team can raise money to support the cause can be found on the ALSF website.
