Southern VT Plays Base-Bald

Posted: Updated:
BENNINGTON, Vt. -

In baseball, a good buzzing is part of the game.  On Saturday, the Southern Vermont Baseball Team took it a snip further.  The Mountaineers had their heads shaved to raise money for the St. Baldrick's Foundation benefiting childhood cancer research.

"You have to take a step back and think about the kids that never get that opportunity to get on a baseball field," Mountaineers Head Coach David Gage says.  "We are doing it to for those people."

The team's goal was to raise $3,000 dollars.  They ended up collecting more than $4,600 for the St. Baldrick's Foundation.  Players say this effort has brought SVC closer than ever.
