The Mike Pruitt Scholarship Fund was established in the summer of 2008 and provides scholarships to underprivileged kids ages 8-12 to attend the Coastal Carolina Youth Baseball Camps. The youngsters are introduced to advanced instruction in throwing, fielding, hitting, base-running, and team defense by the Coastal Carolina University Baseball Camp staff and student-athletes.
About the Grand Strand Miracle League & Mike Pruitt Scholarship Fund
During the past 15 years, our players and coaches have devoted a great deal of time to the Grand Strand Miracle League, a baseball league for individuals with special needs. We also support the work of the Mike Pruitt Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarships for underprivileged kids ages 8-12 to attend the CCU Youth Baseball Camp. The funds from this auction will greatly benefit the children involved. When we act together as the CCU baseball community, our efforts can make a real difference.
