The 2016 Dante Benedetti Baseball Classic
Dons Hold on For Win in Dante Benedetti Classic
Over 15,000 kids in the Junior Giants baseball program do not have a glove of their own. The DBF have teamed up with the Giants Community Fund to help these kids! Bring a new or gently used glove, or make a $20 donation, and in exchange you will receive FREE admission to The Dante Benedetti Classic at AT&T March 24th, 2016.
St. Ignatius College Preparatory and Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory are the participants in the oldest Catholic high school athletic rivalry in the country. The Bruce-Mahoney Memorial Trophy is symbolic of the rivalry. Established in 1947, it is awarded to the school which is victorious in league competition in two out of the three major sports each year: football, basketball, and baseball.
The Trophy is named in honor of Bill Bruce (S.I. 1935) and Jerry Mahoney (S.H. 1944), representing the graduates of St. Ignatius and of Sacred Heart who gave their lives for their country inWorld War II. This ancient rivalry continues with the inclusion of the Bruce-Mahoney baseball game in The Dante Benedetti Baseball Classic.
