PONIES Celebrate Coach Sinicki's 25th Year and raise funds for Jack Sheridan

image_name2

On July 9th the Ponies organization held a special event. The evening started with a Home Run Derby to benefit Jack Sheridan, the brother of Ponies Alumni Jordan Sheridan, who is battling Leukemia. Liz Wickizer emerged as the champion after a three way tie produced a hit-off to establish a winner.

The HR Derby was followed by an Alumni Game to honor Coach Sinicki's 25th year. The turnout was amazing! Attendees spanned a few decades and the game appropriately ended in a 5-5 tie. Following the game all of the players presented Coach Sinicki with a Plaque commemorating his 25 years of dedication to the PONIES.

It was a great evening, a fun evening and a proud evening for the Ponies organization as the current team and the Alumni showed their generosity while raising nearly $700 for Jack Sheridan.
