Members of the Fighting Owls baseball team represented Harford Community College in the 12th annual "Home Runs for the Homeless" event hosted by Harford Family House on Monday.

The event, which took place inside Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen, allows teams of four from businesses across Maryland to compete in a home run derby-style competition while raising both funds and critical awareness for Harford County's families with children experiencing homelessness.

Team Harford CC consisted of redshirt sophomore Ajay Sczepkowski and a trio of freshman in Mason Hicks, Joe Quelch and Joe Clancy. The four Fighting Owls put together a final score of 935, which included one home run each from Hicks and Quelch.

After the hitting was finished, the Fighting Owls were joined on the field for a photo op with Harford Community College Board of Trustees member Brian Walker, the Councilmanic District C Representative.

Over the past 12 years, "Home Runs for the Homeless" has raised more than $280,000, helping to provide housing, resources and support for Harford County's families with children experiencing homelessness. Harford Mutual Insurance Company has been the event's "presenting sponsor" since its inception. Now in its 30th anniversary year, Harford Family House has supported more than 600 families, touching the lives of more than 1,900 individuals.
