The College of Charleston baseball team will take off their gameday caps and shave their heads following the Cougars’ contest with James Madison on April 19.

Why exactly would the squad do such a thing? To raise money and awareness for two childhood cancer research organizations for the third straight year. That’s why.

The Cougs will work with the national Vs. Cancer Foundation and “Hugs for Harper” local organization to try and gain capital and an overall greater awareness for both groups.

“This is the third year that our team has been involved with this terrific event,” head coach Monte Lee said on “I think that it’s really important for our student-athletes to have a full educational experience here, and being involved in their communities and involved with these charities is an important aspect of that education. Every year, I am personally moved by the stories and impact that this event has on families in the Charleston area.”
