ONLINE BIDDING HAS CLOSED
July 29, 2017, is the 11th Annual Striking Out Cancer Night, presented by the Cape Fear Valley Health Foundation.
Fans will have until the final out of the game to bid on the unique pink game-worn jerseys from players and coaches. The winning bidder will take home their commemorative souvenir following the game. Online bidding will begin Monday, July 24, 2017. We encourage all online bidders to include a maximum bid that can be updated during the game.
There will also be a survivor walk during the 7th inning. If you or a loved one has been affected by cancer and you would like to participate in the walk, please visit the Cape Fear Valley Health Fan Stand upon your arrival.
“We’re excited to continue to partner with Cape Fear Valley Health System on this tremendous event,” General Manager Jeremy Aagard said. “Year after year, it continues to benefit the residents of our community. There are very few people left untouched by cancer so this event continues to be important for many people throughout the area. It’s an honor to be able to give back to our community in this way.”
The starting bid is $75 and the minimum bid increment is $10.

The Coastal Plain League is the nation’s hottest summer collegiate baseball league. Celebrating its 19th season in 2015, the CPL features 14 teams playing in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. The CPL gives college players the chance to refine their skills with the use of wooden bats. Players are housed with local host families for the summer and past experiences have been very positive for both players and hosts. The CPL has had over 1,200 alumni drafted and 70 of those – including 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young winner Justin Verlander – make their Major League debut; while another notable alum – Russell Wilson – won Super Bowl XLVIII.
