Added to the roster of the many organizations that support students in the Ferndale School District is the Ferndale Baseball Boosters.  This nonprofit formed last year with parents who want to help keep the middle school and high school baseball teams playing without having to turn kids away who may not be able to afford it if there were a charge.

“Because this sport is not pay-to-play like many teams in the area, support is needed to help the team with many needs like equipment, uniforms, hats, etc,” said Vice President Jim Michalak  “We are also working on improving the field, dugouts and concessions area, and have a goal to get a scoreboard for the varsity field.”

Secretary Barb Landry has created a fundraiser page to help get sponsorships for a new scoreboard, with a goal of $5,000.  This page is at http://www.gofundme.com/237tis?pc=fb_cr#description.

Plus it’s got some historical pictures of former proud Eagles, such as former Michigan Governor James Blanchard donning a tu tu for a talent show.  Check that out at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Ferndale-Baseball-Boosters/140403922775361?ref=ts&fref=ts.
