Inaugural LJ Classic a Huge Success

December 27, 2021

D-BAT Amarillo and RCI Sports Management Solutions hosted the LJ Classic October 16th in the honor of Linda Jean Burkman who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2020. The 10U youth softball tournament consisted of 6 teams and was held at THE YARD at D-BAT Amarillo. The event raised $5900 in its debut year with the help of generous local sponsors and two main sponsors Bio Steel (Amarillo Budweiser) and Texas Oncology’s Dr. Arenivas & Dr. Dyrstad. The LJ Classic looks forward to growing the event in the future to provide more for local research and support.
