Smoke Eaters host charity softball game

The Trail Smoke Eaters will break out the bats and balls for its Booster Club’s annual Charity Softball Game on Wednesday

The Trail Smoke Eaters will break out the bats and balls for its Booster Club’s annual Charity Softball Game against the Trail RCMP and Regional Fire Services at Butler Park on Wednesday.

The Smoke Eaters will look to gain a measure of revenge after a 22-21 loss in last year’s slugfest, but it was all in fun as the game raised over $3,000 for  local charities.

The game also provides a great opportunity for local residents to meet the 2015-16 Smoke Eaters team in a fun and unique environment. Local players include Trail’s Jeremy Lucchini, Montrose native Spencer McLean, and Ross Armour from Rossland, while RCMP and Firefighters will again field a  formidable lineup of local favourites and personalities.

More importantly, the game will raise money for the Salvation Army and Sanctuary this year, as well as help out the Smoke Eater Booster Club that emerged last year with the specific purpose of helping the players fulfill their nutrition and fitness goals.

Last year’s match was a run-away success with about 300 fans packing the stands in an entertaining game that went down to the final at bat.

Admission is by donation, but $20 will also get you a ticket to the Smoke Eaters home opener against the Vernon Vipers on Sept. 12 and all kids attending will also get a free ticket. The concession will be dishing up some delicious fare, with game time at 5:30 p.m. at Butler Park.
