Minor League pitchers to visit Tilt’n Diner on Wed.

TILTON — Former rivals and local pitching standouts Jordan Cote and Derrick Sylvester will be together again, this time to benefit local kids and families. The two minor leaugue pitching prospects will be on hand at the Tilt'n Diner at Exit 20 in Tilton Wednesday night, December 10 from 5:30-7:30 as part of the 28th annual Mix 94.1fm Cash and Cans Money and Food Drive for the Holidays

Cash and Cans founder and Mix 94.1fm Program Director Fred Caruso is thrilled to have both players for the annual spaghetti dinner. "I think it's terrfiic and says volumes about these two young men who are donating their time to the Cash and Cans Program," said Caruso, who coached Cote, a 2011 graduate, at Winnisquam Regional High School and coached against Sylvester, a 2009 Franklin High School product. "They'll sign anything you'd like. Bring in your hats, bats, balls, gloves...for a donation in any amount to our Cash and Cans Program. I can't thank them enough for donating their time."

Cote was drafted in the third round by the New York Yankees in 2011. He pitched a no-hitter in the state championship game in 2010, leading the Bears to their first ever baseball championship. Sylvester led the 2009 Golden Tornadoes to a state championship, their first in 25 years. He was drafted in the 32nd round by the Los Angeles Dodgers this past summer after a stellar career at SNHU. Both are currently in the minor league systems of their respective clubs.

A limited number of 5x7 photos will be available for each player. "It's rare in our area to have two high-profile kids get drafted within a couple of years of each other. They had a couple of memorable battles on the field during their high school days. It's going to be great to see them back together again," said Caruso.

The spaghetti dinner runs from 5-8pm. It's all-u-can-eat for just $8.99 with five dollars from each dinner sold benefiting Cash and Cans, along with the proceeds from the autograph session. The Cash and Cans program benefits nine local, central New Hampshire organizations who in turn help thousnds of people who need a helping hand, especially at this time of year.
