Baseball Boosters Needed

          Everything is in place; we have excellent coaches - full equipment - heavy schedules - insurance - great players and a good chance to be zone champions again.
     All that is needed now is help from loyal sponsors to help defray the $5,000 to $6,000 cost of this worthwhile program.
     All of our costs have increased - umpires - equipment - uniforms - bats - balls - insurance - you name it.  Coaches - managers, etc. do NOT get paid and it sure does help to know many generous people share with us the knowledge that keeping young athletes busy during the summer months is a positive thing.
     Several fund raising activities are planned.  However, this Booster Club has worked well in the past and I hope it will be successful again this year.
     Donations are as follows: Single Club (1-9 Dollars), Double Club (10-24 Dollars), Triple Club (25-49 Dollars), Home Run Club (50-100 Dollars) and Grand Slam Club (Over 100 Dollars).
     Please go to bat for us and perhaps come to a couple of games.  The schedules will be in the local papers.
     Checks should be made payable to "Post 17 Baseball Fund" and mailed to the following address:
