Marathon Game Raises Over $50,000
Each year each PBA players send over 50 letters to family, friends, peers, and businesses to ask for pledges for the 100-inning game known as the Marathon Game. Pledges range from $10 to $1000. The Marathon Game is a major fundraiser for the Prairie Baseball Academy, and once again it proved to be successful in 2011, raising over $50,000 for the program. PBA's Annual Marathon Game was held on October 29th, 2011 at Lloyd Nolan Yard beginning at 9:00am and finishing at 4:00pm.
In its 17th year of existence, the Marathon Game has raised over $300,000 dollars. The Prairie Baseball Academy board of directors, coaching staff, and players would like to thank everyone who has pledged and supported the Marathon Game!
