Congratulations goes out to the Vermont Lake Monsters . A great game was player on Wednesday Night between the Hooks and the Monsters on Playhouse Field #1 with the Monsters winning it by a score of 8-7. The Hooks gave it a good try and had all their fans on their feet when they had the bases loaded in the final inning of play but just came up short. This will be a game for the history books for another reason as well, it was the last Minor League championship game ever to be played on this field. They new “Clague Memorial Baseball Park” will be taking it’s place. The construction should start later this summer and a new park will be built in it’s place including more parking spaces for all to enjoy. Look forward to seeing you all on opening day.

Greetings,
Hope your summer is off to a great start! I wanted to reach out with the attached brochure for our Baldwin Wallace Baseball Youth Summer Camp. Camp is on July 15-17. The camp is for students entering grades 2-8, so I was hoping you might know whose hands to get this into! Thanks a lot for your help!
