Here's just a small sampling of impactful moments from our event over the years.

Being involved in the cancer game this year has been very special to me since I am being treated at the UCSD Moores Cancer Center in addition to having my son be the starting pitcher for that game.

Scott Schaller

The first pitch of the 2017 Cancer Awareness game between Mt. Carmel High School and Del Norte High School was thrown out by Scott Schaller, who was battling pancreatic cancer, to his son, Senior Zach Schaller. Scott has since lost his battle.


Kendra Couch

Junior Carter Couch and Coach Kyle Owsley hold the jerseys displaying their mom's name alongside Kendra's husband Scott and daughter Cassidy. The jerseys were won in the silent auction and given to the family. Kendra lost her battle in 2013.



Maria Andrulonis

Coach and KCC Founder Keith Johnson wore and won the jersey with Maria's name on it in 2015. He gave it to her and she wore it during each of her subsequent chemotherapy treatments at UCSD Moores Cancer Center. Maria is currently in remission and an active participant in the organization of this year's KCC Tournament.
