Bat boys/girls needed

The KGH Foundation is looking for five (5) young athletes to fulfill some very special roles at the second annual Gorges Comeau HOMEBASE Charity Slo-Pitch All-Star Game on Friday, June 28 at Elks Stadium.

Bat boys and girls are needed to support each of our two, celebrity NHL softball teams!  We are also looking for a special youth athlete to throw the official first pitch of the game.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to meet some of the NHL’s biggest stars, including Josh Gorges, Blake Comeau, Shea Weber, Carey Price (and more!), learn about working as a team and be a part of the MOST ENTERTAINING family event of the summer.

Thanks to the generosity of Bat Kids sponsor August Luxury Motorcars, this year’s bat girls and boys will also be treated to a once-in- a lifetime dream ride and ‘grand’ entrance to the game!

To be eligible, athletes must be:

  • Between the ages of 8 – 11
  • Available Friday, June 29, 3pm  - 9:30pm
  • Willing and able to fetch bats, balls, water and whatever else our celebrity players need during the game!
  • A big sports fan!
  • Ready to wave, smile and get fans excited!

To apply for this very important volunteer role, kids are asked to submit the following information

  1. Name, age and sports team(s) that you play on
  2. A photo of you in your team uniform – we’d like you to be prepared to wear your uniform and represent your team at the game!
  3. Tell us WHY you think that it’s important for families to be together when a loved one is sick.  If you or a family member has had to travel for care, please share your story!

Submit by email to by Mon. Jun. 17.  Late applications will not be accepted.

Successful applicants will be notified by Weds. Jun. 19.
