Help Cass drag in drag

Many of you will remember Cass Ferguson, who just graduated from Charlotte and spent the past four seasons as a manager on the men's basketball team.

He has moved on and currently works for the Winston-Salem Warthogs minor league baseball team. The organization is taking on a unique fundraising activity on behalf of the Special Olympics of Forsyth County and Cass could use your help.

All of the men who work in the Warthogs front office, including the mascot, Wally the Warthog, are participating in a fundraising drive in which the four who raise the most money will perform the infield drag "in drag" during the Warthogs' Aug. 3 game against the Potomac Nationals.

During the rest of this month, fans can donate money to whichever man they would like to see "Drag in Drag." Fans can vote at Warthogs games at Ernie Shore Field or by calling the front office at (336) 759-2233 to place donations. All proceeds will benefit the Special Olympics of Forsyth County.

I know many of you recall Cass dashing to the locker room at top speed to deliver halftime stats. How well he maneuvers in drag we'll have to see.

He's not going to be with us anymore? That guy was the man. I've never seen someone run so fast in a suit.

Good luck!
