Jackson Field 1 is Ready for Opening Day
Thanks to everyone who worked so hard getting the field ready, in particular Scott Davis who has been out there almost every day in April. He's got to be back into shape by now ...
Thank You Anonymous Donor
May the Jackson infield grass forever be freshly cut, thanks to an anonymous donor.
Field Maintenance Day Full of Sunshine (Not)
On April 15, about 20 Wilson JBO players and their families braved our fabulous Oregon weather and a little bit of mud to work on our game and practice fields at Jackson MS. The remaining players will finish off the work before our season starts on April 24. Thanks boys!
2018 Spring Season Dedicated to Jack Schumacher
Jack "Shoe" Schumacher is a former Jackson MS student who is battling cancer. Many of our current Wilson JBO players played with Jack in SW Portland Little League. He had an electric fastball and a great attitude. Keep up the fight Jack! Learn more about Jack's battle here.
UPDATE: With great sadness we learned that Jack passed away on May 18, 2018. Wherever he is playing now, his fastball is jumping and the fields are always perfect.
