Coming up just short to Perry 10U 19-11, the boys played great all weekend and should be proud of making the finals in a tough field of teams!

Each year, Stampede Baseball partners with The Littlest Heroes to support their Adopt-a-Family For the Holidays Program. These families have been touched by childhood cancer, and have a son or daughter that has been or is currently going through treatment. As we all know, the financial hardships of having a child with cancer are already difficult enough, and with the COVID-19 Pandemic still on us, it makes it especially challenging for these families.
Thanks to the generosity of our Stampede Families, we raised nearly $2,500!!! Stampede purchased the gift cards, and assembled holiday packages to deliver to our adopted families this week. We hope we can help make our adopted family's holiday a little more special this year!
Thank you again & wishing you all a healthy and happy Holiday Season!
