Homers for Hamer

The very first "Homers for Hamer" took place on September 16, 2017. The event was put on by two John Carroll Seniors, Ryan Archibald and Grant Astle, who played along side the rising star pitcher Joshua Evan Hamer. Ryan and Grant have chosen to make this a part of their Senior Projects. This event, along with the Hamer Memorial Tournament, will be annual events with the purpose of raising money for the Hamer Scholarship Fund. The fund was created to help to lower the cost of tuition for baseball players, whose families have difficulties when considering John Carroll as a potential school for their son due to finances. We are so grateful for all the generosity and support from the JC and greater Community. THANK YOU!

Here is a list of the Winners of each category:

12U Winner: Anthony Cerone

13U - 15U Winner: Jordan Reiswig

16U - 18U Winner: Ryan Archibald

Alumni & Adults: Tim Kutcher & Chad Blevins
