With the grass turning green around the countryside and sunlight becoming more prevalent, for some folks, baseball season can’t come soon enough. For members of the Emmetsburg E-Hawk Baseball Teams, there’s another reason they’re looking forward to the upcoming baseball season.

It is providing the players an original way of raising funds for their season – raffling off a lawnmower.

Through a generous offer by Woodford Equipment of Emmetsburg, the E-Hawk Baseball Team is selling chances on a 2015 Hustler Raptor SD Riding Lawnmower. The mower features a 54-inch cutting deck and is powered by a 23 horsepower motor and features Zero-Turn Steering. The suggested retail price of the mower is $3,999.00.

All players on the Emmetsburg Baseball Teams have raffle tickets available for purchase. The raffle will conclude on Tuesday, May 24, the 2016 home-opener for the E-Hawks, when they will host Bishop Garrigan’s Golden Bears in a doubleheader.

The winner need not be present to win on the night of the drawing.

A special deal of three tickets for the price of two is currently in effect for the raffle. Persons wanting more information or having questions can contact E-Hawk Baseball Coach Brett Hanson at 712-480-0182, or at bhansen@e-hawks.org.
