The time has come!!! Thank You! Thank You! Thank You!
Thanks to your generous donations, the Cory Lidle statue is being repaired and will be REDEDICATED on November 15th at its home outside of the Big League Dreams complex in West Covina. Please come on out that day and help us commemorate Cory's competitive spirit and the community's unwavering effort to see that spirit restored for our children's benefit.
Many of you have seen or heard of the tragedy that befell the statue of Cory Lidle outside of the BLD Park in West Covina. For those that haven't, the statue was damaged by thieves looking to steal the statue for it's scrap value. The statue was heavily damaged and repairs are estimated at over $100,000. We are asking for community support to repair the statue so that it can be reinstalled. Our future generations of ballplayers deserve the same opportunities to dream and have their picture taken in front of the statue that represented what hard work, determination, and a true willingness to never give-up really means.
