COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Two teams clad in Maroon & White take the field at Blue Bell Park from May 13-15, but that weekend the Texas A&M baseball team will Turn It Gold. 

When Texas A&M hosts Mississippi State, the Aggies will be raising funds for Turn It Gold. The Turn It Gold foundation fights for the voiceless youth in pursuit of elevating childhood cancer awareness and generating bold action through online story sharing, events, and media with the hopes to change the percentage of dollars invested in childhood cancer research and make a real difference for a cure.

“I have had the experience of walking alongside a family who had a child going through a fight with cancer,” Coach Jim Schlossnagle said. “And I have always felt like those that work to fight childhood cancer and those nurses and doctors who help those fighting this disease are true angels on this earth. With that being said, anything that I can do both personally and professionally to help people going through this fight, I want to help. It’s an honor for our baseball program to be involved in Turn It Gold.”

As part of the fundraising efforts, gold t-shirts, bubble machines and wristbands will be among the items sold.

Turn It Gold is no stranger to Texas A&M Athletics, working with the Aggie soccer squad since 2015.
