I would like to take a minute to tell you about an upcoming event that is vitally important to the Lakeridge baseball program and also benefits the local community’s youth baseball.

Lakeridge High School Baseball program kicked off its seventh annual crab feed fundraiser earlier this month. The crab feed is an event that was initiated by a group of former Pacer baseball players and parents because it was an opportunity to draw on Lakeridge’s location in the Pacific Northwest and was seen as “unique” in comparison to other fundraising events in the area.

The crab feed is vital to our program because it helps provide funding for better equipment and facilities, field maintenance and travel expenses. One hundred percent of the profits go to the Lakeridge baseball program.

The support not only benefits the high school program, but Pacer Junior Baseball as well.

Last year, the profits from the crab feed were used to help reconstruct our junior varsity field, which is located across from the high school. This field is not only used by our high school’s freshmen and junior varsity teams, but by the seventh- and eighth-grade junior baseball teams as well.

This year, the crab feed dinners are being sold for $28 each. Each dinner includes a half-pound of freshly caught Dungeness crab (no shells), two side salads (coleslaw and potato salad) and a fresh roll with butter. Many past customers have expressed great satisfaction with these dinners, and as such, we have had many repeat buyers from year to year. Dinners can be ordered directly from the Lakeridge baseball players or on our website at

Dinner orders are accepted up to midnight on Jan. 28 and will be available for pick-up at Lakeridge High School from noon to 3 on Feb. 2. All meals are take-out and there is no seating available. This would be a wonderful opportunity to pick up some crab the day before your Super Bowl party on Feb. 3.

Thank you for your support of Pacer baseball.

Cooper Hummel, Lake Oswego, is a member of the Lakeridge High School class of 2013 and a catcher on the Pacer baseball team.
