Starting with the ceremonial first pitch thrown by Morgan Powell, the Seattle University baseball team celebrated Morgan's Day Sunday by defeating UC Davis and capping off a successful fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.

Morgan, the daughter of Seattle U assistant baseball coach Casey Powell, was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes and must continually track her sugar intake in order to keep the condition under control. Redhawk head baseball coach Donny Harrel immediately took on the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) as one of the baseball team's charity causes, holding a Morgan's Day each season to raise money and awareness.

In addition, proceeds from last year's Fall Ball would also go towards the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. The two events combined raised over $1000 for JDRF, which will be used by the organization to, according to its website, "progressively remove the impact of T1D (type 1 diabetes) from people's lives until it is no longer a threat to anyone."

"This has been a great cause for our program and all people involved. I am very proud of all those who contribute to this great cause and we are thankful we can be a part of it," said Harrel.

The Seattle University baseball team, currently 8-12, heads to Ruston, La., to open WAC play against Louisiana Tech Saturday through Monday, March 23-25.
