‘Cats Care: Community Grounds Crew & More!
Following the ‘4 in 24’ field renovations, the BlueShield of Northeastern New York’s Community Grounds Crew Program has been continuing in full force with the maintenance of Westland Hills in Albany and Carmen Little League in Rotterdam.
Another very important project was the renovation of the Middleburgh Central School’s baseball field. The field was hit hard by Hurricane Irene and needed lots of work. That’s where the BlueShield’s BlueCrew and the ValleyCats stepped in to re-sod the infield and put in a new pitcher’s mound and home plate area.
Here are some photos from Middleburgh:
The past few weekends have been filled with Little League Opening Days (20 to be exact), and community events that SouthPaw, Pappy SouthPaw, Rowdy and many other ‘Cats mascots participated in. Below are some photos from just a handful of them.
Aside from the Opening Days, one of the events we participated in was Bowling Against Bullying at Spare Time in Latham. The event was organized by singing sensation and Bethlehem Middle School student Anthony Gargiula. Anthony is a staple here at “The Joe,” singing the National Anthem each season.
All of the money raised will fund bullying education in area schools.
