We (the Delta Youth Baseball League) are writing to you for two purposes: The first is to introduce you to our organization, and the second is to request your financial support for our 2013 All Star Tournament Teams.
The Delta Youth Baseball League has been a mainstay for both the community and our youth.
We teach the merits and benefits of teamwork, competition and sport to roughly 150 kids each year. The kids range in age from 8 to 15 and live throughout our community.
While City of Delta runs the regular Little League season, the All Star tournament requires funds that the city does not provide, such as registration fees, uniforms and travel. Delta Youth Baseball provides a support group for these teams and players, in addition to providing funds and equipment to the Little League program to keep it vital, but we cannot accomplish this without community support. All donations made for any team will go directly to that team and will not be used in the general fund. We are a non-profit organization.
While we understand times are tough economically for most everyone, we truly feel that the intangible benefits our youth receive through participating in the Little League All Star Program cannot be tracked with a price tag. The life skills they achieve by participating are invaluable to them as they enter and move through their childhood to adulthood, and the competition the players face in All Stars prepares them for the next level of baseball.
As mentioned previously, we are seeking direct contributions from members of the community to help our all star players play in tournaments all over the Western Slope. Please feel free to contact myself or any other league board member or coaches directly should you wish, and be able to support us in any way that you see fit. We understand that such donation decisions need to be a two-way street and because of this, we are always ready, willing and able to help our generous donors receive the recognition they deserve, through word of mouth and thank you ads through our local newspapers. I want to thank you in advance for your time, and I also want to say, on behalf of our players, that we appreciate any support you can give. Thank you for being a member of our supportive community.
