Fundraisers for Billy Phillips, Diagnosed with Leukemia

Billy Phillips, one of the top players to come through Brandywine Little League, was diagnosed with Leukemia on March 10. Billy is currently a senior at Saint Mark's High School and, as a hard-throwing lefty, is committed to the University of Maryland. Billy has a "Mamba Mentality" to help beat this but, in the meantime, medical bills will be piling up so donate what you can to help Billy and his wonderful family including Michelle, his Mom, and Matty, his brother and BLL All-Star. Billy, the BLL Community is praying and pulling for you!  ‪#‎BP15‬

Several former BLL players have also organized a fundraiser for Billy Phillips by selling wristbands that say, ‪#‎BP15‬ and "Mamba Mentality," a mentality that Billy uses on the mound and in his fight against cancer. Wristbands will be available for $5 each and in time for Opening Day.

3) The Hard Sell

Now, for a limited time only, YOU can become a Brandywine Little League umpire.   Yes, we know you’ve thought about it.  We know you’ve wondered whether you could do it.  Well, remove all doubts.  You don’t have to be tall or smart or good looking.  Bad hearing?  That’s a plus.  Bad vision?  Practically a prerequisite.  We will provide training and equipment, all at no cost to you.  It’s fun.  It’s easy.  You will be admired by children of all ages.  People will be focused on your every utterance.  YOU can do it.  YOU can become a Brandywine Little League umpire.  To volunteer call Mike Johnson at 668-5722.

P.S. Call in the next two hours, and we will send you your free booklet on how to be unfailing and all-knowing.

5) Sarcastic

Do you like getting yelled at?  Want people to question your every decision?  Enjoy being hit by foul balls?   Become a Brandywine Little League umpire.  You don’t get paid, but you get the benefit of being talked about behind your back.  Volunteer now.  Call Mike Johnson at 668-5722.
