Raising money for Celebration Field

Posted by Desiree Childers on Mar 12 2016 at 04:00PM PST

Bright Star Baseball is a 501©3 nonprofit special needs baseball league which allows children with special needs between the ages of 5 and 18 the opportunity to play baseball, America’s favorite pastime! Our Mission Statement is: “To provide special needs children the opportunity to experience the game of baseball while building self-esteem and peer relationships.”

Our Bright Star Baseball Board of Directors would like to announce that our Celebration Field fundraiser is currently underway and we invite you to help us reach our goal! What is Celebration Field? Bright Star Baseball’s goal is to build a field with a specialized synthetic surface for our players. With a rubberized surface, this field will allow players of all disabilities improved mobility. Those players who use wheelchairs and walkers will be able to maintain their very expensive equipment in good working order, while they participate in Bright Star Baseball games. Celebration Field will also allow our regular baseball games to continue as scheduled even after a rain storm. Several times we have had to cancel due to weather or field conditions and the inability to reschedule makeup games.

We are seeking donations to help defray the costs associated with building the field. The city of Sulphur Springs has generously agreed to our use of one of the current fields when we are able to raise the money. All donated funds will go directly towards the construction of Celebration Field, the future Home of Bright Star Baseball.
