On September 13-14, there will be a Softball Tournament at Dred Scott field for the benefit of Mike Snyder Jr.
Mike has been a BTBA player as well as a member of our grounds crew. His dad, Mike Sr., is currently on our grounds crew and has been a familiar face at Hrbek Fields as well as a great friend to BTBA for many years.
If you are interested in helping, here are some suggestions:
1. If you have a softball team and would like to play in the tournament, please see the link below for registration information.
2. If you would like to play in the tournament but are not currently on a team, we are forming a BTBA team, so please consider playing with us! The tournament is made up of C and D class teams. If interested, please email Fred Alonzi at email@example.com.
3. Come out to Dred Scott fields over the weekend of 9/13-9/14 and purchase a T-Shirt, proceeds will go to benefit Mike.
4. Make a direct contribution of cash or gifts. Please contact De Hanuman, firstname.lastname@example.org, for more information.
Please note this is NOT a BTBA sponsored event, just a worthy cause to a family that has contributed so much to our organization.
