The Baxter Hitzone 13 & Under baseball team will be kicking off their 2012 Baseball season with a fundraiser at the Baxter Springs Pizza Hut on Tuesday, February 7th, from 5pm-8pm. The Baxter Pizza Hut has once again been gracious enough to allow the boys from our community to wait tables and earn extra money for their baseball season. All the boys on the Hitzone are from Baxter except one. The Hitzone will consist of 11 players and will compete in USSSA for the upcoming season. The boys played in a few tournaments last year taking 2nd place in the season finale in Nevada, MO. The boys will be competing in Claremore, Muskogee, Bixby, and Tulsa, OK as well as Nevada, MO. The boys will travel to Hastings, Nebraska over Mother's Day weekend to compete in a tournament where all the money raised will be donated to continue to help those in Joplin who were affected by the tornado. All the money raised throughout the season will be used to pay for tournaments and expenses related to playing baseball. This a fine group of young men and we are thankful to have a community who has supported our boys for many years.
