Win the Game

On September 14, Devin Cairo was diagnosed with cancer.

Devin’s one goal is to “win the game.”

Just like in baseball, things can happen in life that cause adversity.  Yet, we know we have to get up and get back into the game, because it’s not about one pitch, one run, or even one inning.  It’s about finishing and winning the game.

So, the purpose of this site is to provide information to those who want to help Devin win the game.  And, there are lots of ways to do that.  Just take a look at the pages and see how you can get it the game and help Devin.

IMG_0606This past Saturday, the baseball community and friends and family gathered at McAlister’s Deli in Murfreesboro for Dinner with Devin, an event that raised funds for the Devin Cairo Benefit Fund.  The event was slated to begin at 5:00 pm, and as the hour approached, so did the community.  By 5:30 pm, every table in McAlister’s was full, and the lines to order were 7-8 deep.

By the end of the night, those who came raised over $3000 for the benefit fund.  T-shirts and bracelets were sold, and many people gave donations.  Also, many of the area high school baseball teams were represented in their support of a baseball brother.  Members of the Oakland baseball program cleared tables and refilled drinks throughout the night.

A sincere thank you to McAlister’s Deli and the employees who helped make this a great night for Devin and his family.

The funds were raised at a homecoming dance earlier in the year.
