CARTERVILLE – The John A. Logan College softball team is taking orders now through mid-November for the purchase of oversized 2015 St. Louis Cardinals’ baseball wall calendars.

Calendars include color photographs of current Cards’ players and a schedule for next season at a cost of $15 with the team keeping a portion of that amount to be used to defray travel expenses next spring.

“These calendars would make perfect stocking-stuffer gifts for Christmas,” said JALC softball coach Bruce Jilek.

The calendars will be delivered in early December.

For more information, call the JALC Athletic Department at 985-2828, X8436 or email brucejilek@jalc.edu.

The competition is limited to 24 teams consisting of four players each. Cost is $25 per player or $100 per team. Registration deadline is Monday, Oct. 20. A captain’s meeting is set for 10:15 a.m. on the 25th with the tournament following at 10:30. Participants are encouraged to dress in athletic attire.
