The San Antonio Missions baseball team will show their support for survivors of the Uvalde school shooting in an upcoming game. Next Thursday, the Missions will take the field wearing custom jerseys that are replicas of the ones worn by the Uvalde Coyotes high school baseball team. The jerseys will be auctioned off during and after the game to raise money for the Robb School memorial fund. First pitch at Wolff Stadium is 7:05 p.m. as the Missions take on the Amarillo Sod Poodles.
“Uvalde has special meaning for the Missions. Wolff Stadium has hosted numerous groups outings and even Coyote Baseball playoff games,” said Missions President Burl Yarbrough. “Anything we as an organization can do in this awful situation to help provide for the Uvalde community, we are honored to do so.”
“On behalf of the entire Uvalde CISD, we express our gratefulness for the support of the San Antonio Missions,” said Uvalde CISD Superintendent, Dr. Hal Harrell. “We are heartbroken at the innocent lives lost. The Uvalde CISD Administration, staff, and families will forever be thankful for the generous support of the community and nation. We believe in ourselves, pray for a brighter future, and together we are #Uvaldestrong.”
