Winterball Baseball benefits the U.S. Marines’ Toys for Tots program. To play, baseball players must donate at least one unwrapped toy for the cause. The U.S. Marines will be on-hand to collect toys.

Event organizer, Brett Rudy, addresses players before last year’s Winterball baseball game.

In a terrible twist of fate, Master Gunnery Sergeant William McCorkle, who had been present for many Winterball game, passed away less than a week before last year’s game. His sons, Jim and Jack McCorkle, were on hand to throw out ceremonial first pitches, joined by Sgt. Tyler Longe McCann and SSgt. Zachary Pineau.
