Trenton, Missouri – The NCMC baseball team will be hosting their annual “Winter Warm-Up” on Saturday, January 30th, 2021. Due to COVID 19, the event will have limited attendance with all festivities for the evening available virtually thanks to Pirates Digital Media. We encourage all of our fans, alumni, and friends of the program to participate in this manner. Retired Kansas City Royals’ front office executive and Trenton native Mike Arbuckle will be the keynote speaker for the event.
To start off the day, current NCMC players and future Pirates baseball commitments will take part in a baseball workout in the Ketcham Community Center and the Russ Derry Practice Facility.
The evening’s dinner will begin at 6:00pm in Ketcham. The “Winter Warm-Up” is designed to reunite and honor all TJC/NCMC baseball alumni and celebrate with friends of the program. Prior to the keynote address, the 2021 Pirates team will be introduced, the coaching staff will give an outlook for the upcoming season and newly signed recruits will be introduced. All festivities will be streamed live and be available on demand.
Winning tickets from the baseball fundraising raffle will also be drawn at the dinner. Top raffle items include a 50” Samsung 4K Crystal UHD HDR Smart TV and a Traeger grill. Also in the drawing are two Hall of Fame autographs, one a baseball card signed by Stan Musial and the other a photo signed by Cal Ripken Jr. Other memorabilia from current and past MLB players are also included in the raffle drawing. To purchase tickets, contact any NCMC baseball player or purchase online.
