The Corunna Youth Baseball-Softball Program has around 350 boys and girls from our community playing in our recreation league. We also have kids from Chesaning, Maple Grove and Owosso playing on our fields throughout the summer. This year we are hosting a tournament July 7th, 8th, and 9th. Our goal is to have 36 teams from the mid-Michigan area in our tournament, this will bring over 1000 people into the Corunna and Owosso area. A few years back, 6 new backstops and infields were installed along Cherry Street, backing up to Mitchell Fields/McCurdy Park. When this project was done, the league had funds just for the infields and backstops, at that time no dugouts or outfield fences were installed. Over the last couple years through volunteers and donations from some great area businesses we have been able to add a few dugouts and a small concession stand.
This year we have set a goal to raise the funds to complete two of the fields with outfield fencing, nearly $10,000 is needed for this project. One of the ways we are trying to raise the money, is by selling show of support/advertising signs to be displayed on the backstops of our 6 fields. We are asking for support from our area businesses and families to raise these funds so that we can continue to move forward in completing the fields. One of our reasons for wanting to complete these fields is so we can start hosting a couple of annual youth tournaments throughout the summer. This would help raise funds for future projects, field maintenance and allow us to keep the cost to a minimum for our kids in the community
Please consider showing your support with the purchase of a sign to display your business logo, the signs will be printed on coroplast in full color and displayed on the upper portion of the backstops facing the fans. The signs will be displayed from April 1st until the end of summer.
Thank you for your time and consideration,
