Baseball to Host Dedication Games for Rebecca Kane

WATERVILLE, Maine – The Thomas College baseball team will be supporting the Kane family on Saturday April 29, dedicating both games to Rebecca Kane who recently passed away after a battle with cancer.

The student-athletes of the Thomas baseball team held a strong connection with Rebecca and wanted to commemorate the positive impact she had on the Thomas community by dedicating their doubleheader against Colby-Sawyer in her name.

The baseball team will be wearing and giving out "We Play for Kane" bracelets (see image above).  They will be accepting donations for the bracelets with all proceeds going to the Kane Family.  If you would like a bracelet, please contact any Thomas baseball player or get one at the scorer's table at the games on Saturday.  All donations, big or small, are greatly appreciated.

Thomas Baseball Coach Greg King along with captains Matt Rutherford and Jordan Gibson shared their feelings on what Rebecca meant to the Thomas community:

"Rebecca was the face of Thomas College.  She was the first person to greet you every morning and she meant everything to the students.  Her compassion for others was extraordinary as she always went out of her way to make someone's day better despite her struggles.  She would constantly ask how our student-athletes were doing on and off the field.  Rebecca will be truly missed." - Coach Greg King

"This will be a special game for our team. Rebecca was an amazing woman who always had a smile on her face and had a positive impact on the whole baseball team and Thomas community." - Junior captain Matt Rutherford

"Playing for Rebecca Kane means a lot to me. When I came to this school four years ago she was the first person to welcome me to the school. She couldn't believe a guy from Georgia decided to attend school all the way up in Maine. She always brought joy to the Thomas College community. She was a full of life and energy. That always brought a smile across my face whenever I saw her." - Senior captain Jordan Gibson
