100,000 Grounder Challenge a HUGE success!
40 DHYS players came out to Medlock yesterday with one goal in mind...to each field 1,000 ground balls. Those players did just that. After running through 14 different stations on two different fields, these players hit the magic number. Prior to the event, these same players were focused on raising money for the league to make improvements. These 40 players gave it all they had physically and also raised more than $12,000.00!
The 100,000 Grounder Challenge will be the league's premiere fundraiser as the players will only get better with all the practice. Next year, we hope to have twice as many players (if not more) take part in the Challenge. Make sure your player doesn't miss out on the fun and the instruction in next year's 100,000 Grounder Challenge.
So to all those who participated yesterday, and to all the parents and coaches who pitched in to volunteer, we just want to say, "Way to go!"
