On April 22nd in their second annual Strike Out Heart Disease game, the Scots sported special red jerseys. Despite falling twice to the Cardinals by scores of 18-15 and 5-1, Macalester was working towards a goal of raising $1,000. They sold t-shirts, raffle tickets and ribbons during the game. All donations will go to support the American Heart & Stroke Association.
