THANK YOU for participating in the 1st Annual NixonStrong Foundation Memorial Day Tournament 2020. What an honor to have each one of you to this Tournament. We cannot express our appreciation to all of the teams, players, coaches, fans, South Jordan City and their staff, especially their ground crew, and especially to our volunteers who helped make this happen! THANK YOU! We could not have made it possible with out each of you. We recognize it wasn't perfect and wish we could have had more time to plan, but most importantly we hope that you all had a wonderful time and that in the end it was about the kids. The kids playing the game, and the kids fighting for their lives battling childhood cancer. Each of you have helped contribute to these kids and their families and our hearts are filled with gratitude that you came to play in this Tournament and support what we believe is such an incredible cause. Thank you for making a difference! We will be posting the final amount of money raised for Annika and Beckham's families later this week. We hope that you all have a wonderful rest of your year in baseball and wish you the best of luck. We hope to see you all soon again next year!
