Baseball team holds clinic benefitting cancer group

The Horned Frog baseball team will host the first annual Women’s Baseball Clinic tonight, benefitting the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Tarrant County.

Grady’s Restaurant will provide food and beverages, and the evening’s events include an interactive batting cage contest, a player panel and a fashion show. The fashion show will feature members of the 2010 baseball team and the TCU Showgirls in designs from Fort Worth boutique A. Hooper.

Attendees will have a chance to win a pair of Justin “TCU” boots, American Express gift cards, tickets for the Texas Tech series March 12-14 and autographed merchandise. Complimentary valet service will be provided by Rent-a-Frog, a service owned by an alumnus.

Traci Larrison, a senior account executive with ISP Sports, spearheaded the kickoff event. She said TCU hosts a Women’s Football Clinic every year, and it’s time that baseball has one too. She said she hopes the event will get more women involved with the TCU baseball program.

Head coach Jim Schlossnagle said breast cancer is the kind of thing that affects everyone. He said the objective behind the clinic is twofold: Not only will it promote the Frogs’ upcoming season, but it will also raise awareness and funds for the Komen Foundation.

The clinic is open to all women ages 21 and up.

The Frogs’ 2010 season begins this Friday when they take on Sam Houston State at TCU’s Lupton Stadium.
