Thank you: Baseball team appreciates help paying for trip to Cooperstown

On behalf of the U12 Cooperstown baseball team, we would like to send a home run thank you to Pellicci's Ace Hardware for their support, and donation of a propane barbecue to aid in our fundraising journey. Through a series of Saturday mornings, the boys took turns selling tickets at the store to customers and members of the Farmington community. We were delighted to announce the winner was Mr. Matt Mroczinski. We appreciated the conversations with the community, and the time everyone took to stop and buy a ticket. Your interest and support is greatly appreciated. Our team is now ready for the baseball tournament of 2012 in Cooperstown, New York July 28 through Aug 3.

Cooperstown Dreams Park offers all of us a chance to fulfill childhood dreams. We trust you will agree this is an opportunity of a lifetime. With your support, each player and coach will be immortalized by being inducted into the prestigious American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame, granted membership into this distinguished baseball club, and guaranteed eight games of baseball with 32 teams from around the country.

In the town where baseball began, you are helping us travel to a place in history with baseball's greats. At no other time in the history of youth baseball has there ever been an invitational tournament quite like Cooperstown Dreams Park.

Finally, on behalf of Cameron, Connor, Brock, Aydan, Hunter, Jake, Dylan, Colton, Ben, Brandon, Noah and Devon, thank you again for making this experience possible. We look forward to bringing our memories home to share with all of you.

Lorna Wickham-Lewis,
