Friday, April 18, 2014 - ValleyCats 4in24 Field Rebuild Project

Members of the BRAVES Travel Baseball Club pitch in to help out our friends at the ValleyCats as they rebuild the baseball field at Schenectady Little League.

Big Thank You to BRAVES coaches Jamie Dilbone 15U, Henry Garcia 16U, and Steve Peterson 22U for putting in a full-day ripping-up old grass and laying down brand new sod. "It was a cold day but great feeling to give back to our youth baseball neighbors over in Schenectady." Youth baseball is our future and the BRAVES Travel Baseball Club is committed to help keep our favorite American Sport flourishing. "More Team Practices and Far Less Politics."

Thank you Jamie and Henry! - Steve
