Calvary Christian School encourages homeschool families to become involved in local activities. Junior Giants is a free, noncompetitive and coed baseball and softball program. 'Over 24,000 youth across California, Nevada and Oregon participate annually.
The program offers equipment, uniforms, program incentives and coaches training'. Each year the Junior Giants give the Willie Mac Award to one player in each local league.
"Named in honor of San Francisco Giants Hall of Famer Willie McCovey, this award is the Junior Giants version of the annual award given to a Giants player by his teammates. The Junior Giants Willie Mac Award will go to one outstanding Junior Giants player and coach/team parent that best represents their league, as chosen by their league Commissioner.
A Junior Giants Willie Mac recipient exemplifies Confidence, Integrity, Leadership and Teamwork both on and off the field. Junior Giants Willie Mac Award winners are recognized during a home plate ceremony at AT&T Park on either Junior Giants Day or Coach & Team Parent Recognition Day. All award winners, and a guest, are invited to a special luncheon after the season's end." This year CCS's own Natalie Ehinger was the award winner for the Paso Robles League. All Junior Giants get to attend the Junior Giants Day at AT&T park which includes a walk
around the ballfield and tickets to the game. Willie Mac winners also participate in a Homeplate ceremony and have their photos taken with Willie Mac himself on this day. In November award winners are welcomed back for an official award ceremony, we can fill you in on those details after they happen in November.
