“Knock Cancer Out of the Park” Campaign Is Major Success in First Year

The inaugural “Knock Cancer Out of the Park” campaign has been a huge success for the Livingston Little League. Knock Cancer Out of the Park is a grass roots campaign started in 2017 by Dr. Steven Arsht for the purpose of increasing pediatric cancer awareness and raising money to directly fund pediatric cancer research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. The Knock Cancer Out of the Park campaign was inspired by Jake Kestler, a 12 year old Livingston resident and long-time participant in the Livingston Little League who is currently battling brain cancer. As part of this campaign, $100 was donated for every home run hit this year in the Major League Division. The campaign has raised more than $6,500 in private donations. In addition, there were more than 50 home runs hit by players in the Major League Division during the 2017 season (which ended on June 1); this will add more than $5,000 to the fundraising total.

Livingston Little League baseball teams have participated in the annual World Series tournament since its founding in the late 1950s. This was, however, the first time that a township softball team competed.
