The Old Dominion and VCU baseball teams met in the inaugural Key Dog Strikeout Cancer Classic on Tuesday night at War Memorial Stadium in Hampton, Va. The game served as a fundraiser for the family of longtime Rams’ baseball coach and ODU alum Paul Keyes, who passed away from cancer last November. Keyes won 603 games in 18 seasons at VCU and was a four-time CAA Coach of the Year.
Both teams wore special jerseys that were auctioned off after the game and the event raised more than $7,000. Commemorative T-shirts from the game are still available. Players from both teams also had their heads shaved after the game to raise cancer awareness through the St. Baldrick’s organization.
