Participants and Partners – 11th PSC

“Home Runs That Help” is the community outreach initiative of the POWER SHOWCASE All-World/All-American Baseball Classic. “Home Runs that Help” campaign has two components.  Each POWER SHOWCASE participant’s responsibility is to reach out to their community and contact their local Children’s Hospital. They will partner with a local baseball fan that is suffering from a life-threatening medical condition, disability or special need and can even raise financial contributions for their cause.  It is here where a visit is facilitated and a life-long relationship is forged, and cultivated.All of the home runs hit by the participant are dedicated to that special individual. The first home run ball hit by the POWER SHOWCASE participant is signed, labeled with the distance the ball actually traveled and later presented to the partner. A meeting is scheduled and both are photographed prior to the POWER SHOWCASE event. The photo will then be shown on the Jumbo-tron at Marlins Park when the participant is being announced and walking up to the plate before he hits. In addition, the announcer mentions the partners name as well as some prominent information. The event is broadcast and streamed live world-wide on the POWER SHOWCASE Internet channel.

MISSISSIPPI – KELLUM CLARK

Kellum & KK partnered with Carter Cline for Home Runs that Help

Xavier has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and is in a wheel chair. He is a smart, friendly, and active young man. He is a 2016 Graduate of Ripley High School and plans on attending college this fall. He is the son of Cathy and Victor and brother to Remy and Broedy. Over the years he and his family have spent enormous amounts of time helping the school and youth teams in our area. Xavier was an aspiring baseball player before this disease appealed.
My goal is to raise enough money to help pay off the new wheelchair that Xavier has purchased and any other upcoming or past medical bills.

Carter was born in 2010 with a rare birth condition called O.E.I.S. (Cloacal Exstrophy). It effects 1 in 400,000 live births and is considered by the experts at Johns Hopkins to be the most complex birth disorder to be compatible with life. The condition caused Carter to be born with many of his organs on the outside of his body. Carter has already had over 30 surgeries since birth. Carter also lives with Spina Bifida. He is very blessed to be able to walk. Carter will undergo several more surgeries as he gets older to continue to repair his bladder and organ issues as well as other issues as they arise.

When Kellum and KK started learning about the “Home Runs that Help” opportunity their immediate choice for a partner was the Cline family as they are a sweet gift to our Community of Brandon.”
