Although there are many great moments in the sports lives of our young ball players, certainly one of the highlights for our twelve year old travel baseball players has been the experience of participating in the Cooperstown tournament. Every year, for over 10 years now, the MBC (now MSBC) has sent a 12U team to Cooperstown Dreamspark to face 95 other teams from around the country in a week long competitive tournament.
For many boys this experience has now become a cherished memory and their recollections of good times, great games, and strong bonds with their teammates and coaches, have stayed with them long after they have grown up and moved on. In fact, two of our former Cooperstown alumni and MHS graduates had such great memories of their time at Cooperstown many years before, that they volunteered to accompany their former coach to Cooperstown last year so that they could assist him with his current team and relive some of their childhood memories.
Memories like these don't happen though without the support of many people. Parents, coaches, players and local merchants all come together every year in order to assure that the necessary funds are raised so that the Club can continue to provide our ball players with the opportunity to make their baseball dreams come true. Traditionally, the 12U team parents coordinate the fundraising activities but they need the support of everyone, across all age levels and programs, in order to meet their goals. Please take the time to read the information that will be posted about fundraising events and please be generous in your support.
