LINCOLN — The Saltdogs teamed up with Kaplan University on the “Kaplan K’s for Scholarship” promotion and awarded a student $1,685 towards credit hours from the 2012 season.

Every time a Saltdogs pitcher struck out an opposing batter at Haymarket Park in 2012, Kaplan University donated $5 toward the program.

“Kaplan University encourages all students to reach their potential within the framework of their individual needs, interests and capabilities,” Kaplan University Director of Admissions Michael A. Klacik, Jr. said. “We are pleased to partner with the Lincoln Saltdogs in order to provide additional support with the Kaplan Ks for Scholarship opportunity.”

Valeria Gilbertson was chosen randomly through the registrations submitted through the Saltdogs website and was presented the check (picture attached) September 27.

Lincoln pitchers struck out 337 batters to total the $1,685.

“The Lincoln Saltdogs are proud to partner with a great community minded partner like Kaplan University,” Saltdogs Assistant G.M. Bret Beer said.
