From 1974 to 1976, Mark Raines was an outfielder and catcher for Coach Jimmy White’s Red Foxes. In 2015 the world lost Mark’s physical presence too soon. The Southeastern Baseball Classic is pleased to be one of the many wonderful things positively impacted by Mark’s legacy. Chrisie Raines and Raines Hospitality have joined with the Southeastern Baseball Classic to honor Mark through the Mark Raines Scholarship, presented annually during the tournament. The 2019 winner will be announced on Tuesday, April 16.
Without the generosity of Raines Hospitality, the Mark Raines Scholarship would not be possible. We’d like sincerely thank Chrisie Raines, the Raines Family and Raines Hospitality. You’ve turned your tragic loss into something positive for others. We hope your generosity and kindness inspire the young people that play in our tournament, just as the members of our Board and community have been inspired by your actions.
Please join the SBC Board in welcoming Chrisie Raines to The Jimmy on Tuesday, April 16, for the announcement of the Mark Raines Scholarship recipient.
