HCC baseball sends over 1,000 shirts to Hurricane Harvey victims

Fishers senior short stop Craig Yoho has committed to play baseball at the University of Houston, a school that suffered flood damage in Hurricane Harvey. U of H head baseball coach Todd Whitting reached out to baseball teams across the country, asking for help.

"With one of our own committed to play at Houston, I talked to Craig and told him that we would put some stuff together to send," said Fishers baseball coach Matthew Cherry. "I retweeted Coach Whitting's tweet. Coach Keever from Noblesville then tweeted out a challenge to all HCC Baseball Programs to step up and help as a united conference."

Together, the teams of the Hoosier Crossroads Conference have donated nearly 1,400 items to victims in Texas, including t-shirts and shoes. This idea originated from the University of Houston's basketball coach, Kelvin Sampson in his response to several of his collegiate coaching colleagues who had asked how they could help following the devastation left from the storm.

"The original challenge from Coach Sampson was to send 20 shirts and 10 pairs of shoes. We are probably sending over 100 shirts," said Cherry. "We figured it would be better for hopefully someone who needed them to use rather than to continue to sit in our storage closet."

Hamilton Southeastern baseball coach Michael Henson also joined in on the challenge, boasting that the HCC is the best conference in Indiana, and not just for their skills on the field. HSE sent out 200 t-shirts ranging from youth to adult sizes.

"With each school giving like we did there will be nearly 1,400 shirts and other items headed to the Houston area," said HSE head coach Michael Henson. "This is especially important to me because I have family members that live in the Beaumont area and to see the coaches in this conference step up and give for such a great cause is just another reason why this is the best baseball conference in the state of Indiana."

Noblesville baseball coach Justin Keever has also been very involved in the relief efforts, and has also prepared to send items to Texas.
