Swing for the Fences

Posted by Jamesville-DeWitt Little League on Apr 18 2023 at 06:00PM PDT in 2022 Season

Dear Jamesville DeWitt Little League Families,

Throughout this past year our league has partnered with the JD Booster Club and a very dedicated and generous group of parent volunteers on a project to improve Lyndon Fields. Minors and majors Little League softball teams as well as JV and Varsity JD softball teams all call Lyndon Fields their mutual home. The ultimate, overarching goal of the coalition was to therefore provide encouragement and support to our female athletes throughout their softball journey from Tee Ball to Red Ram.

A tremendously successful community fund-raising effort concluding in the Varsity co-captains presenting a $64,362 check to the district at this past Monday’s school board meeting. The resources will go towards renovations on dug-outs, batting cages, fencing, seating, and other upgrades. The project is slated to break ground this June and continue through the summer. For more about the presentation and the project: https://www.jamesvilledewitt.org/j-d-varsity-softball-players-unveil-impressive-swing-for-the-fences-campaign-check/

Thank you to all the families and businesses whose donations helped demonstrate widespread community interest in the project. Thank you also to the many individuals that contributed so much of your time to organize and plan the endeavor, included members of our Little League Board. Our appreciation for your service and charity cannot be understated.

I hope that all our softball teams have a great spring season!

Chad Corcoran
President, Jamesville DeWitt Little League
