Morris-Baker Sponsors American Little League Team: Morris-Baker Wildfire

Apr 1, 2022 07:00 PM to Apr 1, 2022 07:00 PM

For a second year in a row, Morris-Baker is a proud sponsor of an American Little League team: Morris-Baker Wildfire. 

 

“Baseball is like a microcosm of life,” says Matt Bolton, Board President for the Johnson City American Little League. “Setbacks happen, but right around the corner there is always an opportunity to bounce back.”

 

Johnson City American Little League has been around since the mid-1950's. It’s one of the oldest area Little League-sanctioned youth baseball leagues. It offers several divisions: Wee-Ball (for kids 3-4), Tee-ball (4-6), Coach Pitch (6-8), and Kid Pitch (9-12).

 

The Wildfire is one of the Kid Pitch (Major Division) teams.

 

“It’s a wonderful sport for young people to learn important life lessons,” adds Bolton.
