On a small scale, the efforts put in by Mercer High School is highly appreciated
Mercer High School became the host for a charity softball game for the police officers of Hamilton during June 2017. This was done as a yearly contest of the school and it led to an earning of more than $8000 for the beneficiary of the school, namely Homefront. The police officers ensured that the impact on the students is a positive one while they were scoring, base running and hitting. Detective Len Gadsby, who is a coach for veteran Little League, played the role of the catcher and ensured that the students had proper grip on the bats.
