Help Us with Our September Matching Funds Drive
An anonymous donor has contacted us with a desire to donate to our field resurfacing fund. The donor has $5,000 available to donate. Their is one stipulation. We need to match the donor’s donation. This means that if we can come up with $5,000 in donations, this donor will match it. This would be a great boost to our field resurfacing fund which is at $34,000 at present. Our goal is to raise $65,000. Talk to everyone you know about our league and let them know how they can get involved.
Great News! Lori Feist’s request made to The Gary L & Karen S Taylor Family Foundation was granted. They will present our league with a check for $1,000 ! Nice Job Lori !

SATURDAY BASEBALL – Fun, Fun, Fun!
This was our first year with Saturday baseball and it was a big hit! The players improved their skills while having a great time playing baseball. Branon Bokmuller and Luke Webster were two of the Saturday Stars that really showed a love of baseball and put in the hard work to become better players.
Next year we are looking to expand to two Saturday teams and adding a team to our week day league. This will give players and parents a chance to choose the schedule that works the best for their family. This will open up three coaching opportunities. If you think that you would be interested in coaching or assisting with a team, call Ken Richardson at 330-421-5305 today.
Adult Baseball, A League of Their Own!
Age is no barrier in our adult league. We have players in their 40’s and players in their teens.The game is a very safe version of baseball due to the Lite Flite ball that we use. It travels well but does not injure our players if they are hit. We have players that have played the game since the late 90’s and players that joined for their first season. We like to move players up to the Adult League from the Youth League when they start to hit the ball with authority, driving it through the infield at high speeds. This way we can keep it safe for the players that are still developing their fielding and hitting skills. Join us next season on one of our teams.
