Autism Awareness Fundraiser

On April 30, the Rhode Island baseball team held its fourth annual Autism Awareness fundraiser game to benefit the Autism Project of Rhode Island. The festivities began two hours prior to first pitch, with Cat Country (WCTK, 98.1 FM) on hand to provide music and activities. All kids in attendance were invited onto the field after the game to meet the Rams. In total, the event raised $5,200. The cause is especially important to head coach Jim Foster as his youngest daughter, Delaney, is affected by the developmental disorder. Over the past four years, the URI baseball team has raised over $10,000 for the Autism Project of Rhode Island.
