History of the MLC Baseball Club
In 1969, Sister Mary Mark was a huge fan of baseball and the Madonna students. She recognized that if the school were to succeed, we would need the support of the community. She started a way for baseball fans to support the school and its need for physical education. The MLC Baseball Club was born, and members agreed to donate $1 for every game that the Memphis Blues Baseball Team won.
Today, the Memphis Redbirds are the home team, and our students and alumni love to attend games just like they did 50 years ago.
Due to COVID, our Redbirds didn’t have an opportunity to play during the 2020 Season. We challenged our Redbird Club Madonna Supporters to continue to support our school by imagining how many season games the Redbirds MIGHT have won and donate that amount. And so many did just that! We thank our loyal supporters for their faithful generosity.
The great news is our Redbirds are back and the 2021 Season is in full swing. Our Redbirds have 120 games scheduled this season with 60 home games.
