Manatee County Kids Softball Holds Charity Event to Benefit Manatee Womens Resource Center

The Manatee Twisters 8 & Under competitive softball team is holding their first annual Pros vs. Girls Charity Softball game Saturday, February 18th at Birdie Tebbetts Field, from 1-4 PM on Holmes Beach in Anna Maria Island.

This event will feature a mix-up game of current and former major- and minor-league players, pro and university softball players and our very own Manatee Twisters 8 year old girls. Some of the pros on the lineup are Jose Bautista, the two time American League homerun leader (2010, 2011) from the Toronto Blue Jays, Marco Scutaro now from the Colorado Rockies (just traded from the Boston Red Sox), Jose Tabata (Pittsburgh Pirates) and more to be confirmed…

All proceeds will support two wonderful women’s charities: Manatee Twisters 8 & under competitive softball team and the Women’s Resource Center of Manatee County. Both organizations strive to promote women and young girls to be positive, strong and independent.

There is no charge for this event, but donation helmets will be floating around, as well as a silent auction, ballpark face, BBQ and refreshments.

Everyone is welcome! Bring the family, lawn chairs and cheering voices, and support this unique fun event!
