The Reds team ended the summer on a fantastic note! With a hard-fought win against the Roseland Cubs, our Reds team took the field by storm and won the championship. Great job boyz! This was well-deserved.
Pictured above are members of the team throwing water on their coach, Russ, as they celebrate their championship win.
Chicago Parks Foundation Presents:
Youth Citywide Softball Tournament
This past weekend, our youth girls softball teams (the Lady Bolts and the Lady Thunder) played in the citywide softball tournament held by the city. Unfortunately, they did not win the tournament but they did play their hardest and will bring back knowledge for next season. Our girls did a great job this season and we can't wait to have them back starting with Winter Clinic 2016!
Welcome to our newest donor, Cook-Illinois Corporation! This company read our article in the Sun-Times written by Mary Mitchell and decided that they wanted to help move forward the mission of our organization by ensuring transportation for our youth. So they donated a school bus!
For more than 50 years, schools and parents have trusted Cook-Illinois Corporation with the most precious cargo, their children. Cook-Illinois Corporation began in 1958 as a small company with a handful of buses, but today they are now the largest family owned and operated school bus contractor in the United States – and the sixth largest among all school bus companies nationwide.
Thank you again to this wonderful company for sharing in our vision to improve the lives of youth. They learned we needed help transporting our players and they stepped in with a HUGE HELP!!
