⚾ Partnering to Make a Difference: Eli Lilly & The Cannon Baller Foundation


Eli Lilly and the Kannapolis Cannon Ballers have announced that Lilly will be the presenting sponsor of the Cannon Baller Foundation, which is built upon five pillars identified by the team and stakeholders after three years of working in and giving back to the community at and around Atrium Health Ballpark.

Some highlights…

  • 🎓 Lilly will create a Cannon Ballers Scholarship Program with a direct gift to a graduate who has worked with the Cannon Ballers. They will also donate more than 1,500 meals to Title I students who attend one of the team’s three Education Games.
  • 🌳 Break-A-Bat, Plant-A-Tree Program presented by Mid-Atlantic Structioneers is also new this year. Throughout the season, the team will track how many bats are broken during 2023 home games and host a Tree Planting event in the fall to plant the same number of trees back into our community parks.
