We are so grateful for your support of our fundraiser for Abaco Youth Baseball. We are over 90% of our goal! A special Thank You to the Lyford Cay Charitable Trust for their donation of $15,000 towards this project. We are still in need of additional equipment and funding to rebuild the bathrooms as well as the fence and backstop. With your help, we hope to begin construction later this year.
Practices are going well with over 100 boys and girls participating on Saturday mornings at the Murphy Town Softball Field. The children are learning valuable lessons about team work and discipline. Several of the parents have jumped in to cook up hamburgers and hotdogs during pratice so that the hungry baseball and softball players can enjoy a hot meal before returning home.
We have split the children into age groups and have begun scrimmages at the end of practice to give the players some experience with playing games. We hope to expand our program to include practices in Northern Abaco at the field in Cooperstown later this Summer.
Thank you so much to everyone that has supported our project so far. We can't thank you enough!
