WILKES-BARRE -- As the King's College baseball team prepares this week for their third consecutive Freedom Conference playoff appearance, the team will take a break from workouts on Wednesday, May 3, for a more important endeavor.

The Monarchs will host the Wyoming Valley Challenger Division Baseball League for an evening of fun, food and games at Betzler Fields at 6:00 p.m.

This is an event that the King's baseball team has participated in over the past four years to assist the local league.

This event has become an evening that is not only enjoyed by the challenger players, but is also cherished by the King's players as one of their most rewarding experiences as college students.

Challenger division baseball is a league that is designed for children that experience physical and/or mental challenges and want to enjoy the game of baseball. Former King's assistant coach Rob Cardoni, who passed away this past December, was an avid supporter of this event. Family and friends of Coach Cardoni donated $1,000.00 in his memory to help support the local league.

If you are looking for a fun and rewarding experience please come out and help cheer on these super athletes in what King's coach Jerry Greeley terms as "the most important event that is played in the Wyoming Valley all year."

Members of the King's community, and residents of the Wyoming Valley, are invited to attend . It will be a time to be remembered.
