TEAMSpencer Day 28th January @ Baseball Park.

Watch the Perth Heat take on the Melbourne ACES at 7pm and help support research for Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA).

TEAMSpencer was founded in 2006 by Rick (HEAT assist coach) and Ruth Steven after they tragically lost their son Spencer, who was only 7 months old from Spinal Muscular Atrophy.

Co-founder Rick Steven states “The support the Perth HEAT, Baseball WA and the greater baseball community has been overwhelming.

To think that the TEAMSpencer and Baseball relationship is now in its 10th year and still is so strongly supported really warms the heart and shows that people support what we do. The fact that we see the “Smiley Face” on so many hats, t-shirts and wristbands worn by kids adults and professional baseballers alike only helps raise the public awareness of our cause!”

TEAMSpencer Day aims to raise funds to continue the challenge to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy and this year Grand Cinemas and Muscular Dystrophy Western Australia are proud to be major partners.

On the day grab a TEAMSpencer hat featuring the trademark smiley face, representing the bright eyes and smile Spencer had. All proceeds from TEAMSpencer hat sales will go directly to SMA research.

“TEAMSpencer has been a big part of baseball in WA for so many years. It’s always been an honour to be part of an organisation that has touched so many families.” Luke Hughes, TEAMSpencer Ambassador.
