Baseball Golf Fundraiser, Another Yearly Success
Monday, November 12, 2007
SHREVEPORT – On Friday the 15th annual Curtis H. Stout Invitational was a
success, as 128 golfers participated in the event to help raise money for
the Centenary baseball team. This year head baseball coach Ed McCann
welcomed two special guests to the links, Boston Red Sox pitcher Clay
Buchholz and former Chicago Cubs second baseman Todd Walker.

Participants paid $125 per person or $500 a team, and were also able to
buy mulligan’s and 50 foot links of string to help their scores. All the
proceeds will help the baseball team buy batting gloves, shoes and other
gear for the upcoming season.

Along with Buchholz and Walker, former and current Centenary baseball
student-athletes also took part in the event, as did local media types.

“It was good to see so many people out at the event on Friday,” said
McCann. “I also can’t thank Mike McCarthy enough for all he has done for
this event. Our fundraising event continues to build and build every
year.”

Todd Walker’s team won first place with a score of 45, while he also won
the closest to the pin contest. Roy Lang III of the Shreveport Times and
his team finished in the middle of the pack with a 55, while he took home
the longest drive award. Both Walker and Lang won autographs from Clay
Buchholz and trophies made possible by Mike McCarthy.
