BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA — Former Boston Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield, along with Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy, is hosting an appreciation day for local volunteer coaches who participate in recreational and competition sports, and players on their teams.
The event will be held on Saturday, March 22, starting at 10 a.m. at Holy Trinity, located at 5625 Holy Trinity Drive in Melbourne, just off US 1 and the Pineda Causeway.
Admission to Holy Trinity’s Coach Appreciation Day is free, and online registration is required by March 20.
The Holy Trinity Coach Appreciation Day will feature several events including:
• Exclusive showing at 10 a.m. of the documentary Knuckleball! Showing includes a personal appearance and welcome comments by Wakefield.
• Question & Answer session at 11:30 a.m. with Wakefield immediately following the documentary.
• Free admission to the Holy Trinity vs. Cocoa Beach baseball game at 12 noon. Free hotdogs and drinks will be provided at the game.
Each year, hundreds of volunteer coaches across Brevard County help children of all ages to enjoy the benefits of playing team sports. Teams are encouraged to wear their team jerseys.
“Without volunteer coaches, Brevard’s youth would not have access to the many benefits that come with participation in recreational and competition level of sports such as soccer, football, baseball, lacrosse, cheerleading, etc.,” said Wakefield.
“Playing on a sports team is fun, enjoyable, and the physical activity helps combat the negative effects of more sedentary past times like watching TV. I strongly believe in thanking those who improve the lives of others in our community, so partnering with Holy Trinity to show our appreciation for all those volunteer coaches was a natural fit for me.”
