Coach Fischer Plays Softball, Too?

Mar 25, 2013 -- 8:40am

     Not necessarily......but you might think so if you go out to watch the St. James High Girls Softball team play it's double-header later today! The entire girls team will be wearing Coach Mark Fischer's name on the back of their jerseys in honor of the embattled coach who has been fighting Multiple Myeloma since last fall. The Sharks will host a double-header today starting at 5pm as they take on New Castle (Pa.) & Fairfax (Va.) at Finway Park on the St. James campus. All proceeds from the games will go toward Fischer's growing medical costs. The team will also be selling "rally towels" for $5.00 each, with those profits going to Fischer as well. His medical costs are estimated in the mid six-figures now. Any support you can give will be very appreciated. But the moral support, in Fischer's words, means much more than the money. Well said, Coach. Well said. Got get 'em, Coach !!!!!
