MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

It's a bit of good news in what has been an otherwise upsetting story for many about Victory University's closing.

FOX13 has been following the story since it broke, the university is shutting its doors at the end of the school year in May, laying off the majority of its staff and putting an end to the school's athletic program. 

But Victory's baseball team is trying to rally to finish out the season with a home run.  

With the school's closing, all of Victory University's athletics are going out with it, but not if the baseball team has any say in it first. 

The team needs about $20,000 to finish out the season, and they're turning to the community for help.       

Many have already stepped up, donating anywhere from $500 to $5,000 each.       

Right now the team is well on their way to getting to their goal, able to raise enough to get them through their game this weekend, which also happened to be Senior Day. 

But the team could still use your help. 

"We didn't have a lot, now we have a little and now we have a shot at everything else," Head Baseball Coach John Jarnagin said, "It's really pretty fantastic, it's great about what people have said about our program, and about Victory University, Victory was a tremendous experience for me, it was an unbelievable experience." 

Ten seniors were honored during Senior Day, but the team is hoping this will not be their last game with them. 

If you would like to help the team out and donate, you can do so by mailing a check made out to 'Victory Baseball' to the school at this address:
