Cameron baseball player raising money for breast-cancer victims

August 30, 2011

Cameron High School baseball player Austin Standridge is trying to make some noise — this time off the field. The Yellowjacket athlete is trying to help raise money for breast-cancer victims.
For each home run that Standridge hits this fall, money will be donated to the LeFlore County chapter of the American Cancer Society. It's his Future Farmers of America (FFA) project.
Donations may be made by either donating so much for every homer Standridge hits or a one-time monetary amount. All funds will stay in LeFlore County.
