Fundraiser for the SouthSide American Little League Saturday March 1, 1:30pm at Swallows Restaurant (South Ave). In 2014, SSALL enters its 62nd year of service to the greater communities of the Southwest Quadrant of the City of Syracuse. Due to the overwhelming success of past three fundraisers, SSALL was able to further invest in the future success of our league with new updates to our equipment, purchase of new netting for a batting cage, and a completely new and improved infield at our home field at Wadsworth Park. Funds raised also help offset the costs of umpires for each of our AAA and Majors division games. While the umpire expense accounts for a significant portion of our operating expenses, we feel it is a necessary investment; one that provides a higher level of play in addition to ensuring safety of our players. With your support ($20 suggested donation per person) we hope to meet this year’s goal: Raising a roof over the batting cage! The idea of enclosing the batting cage will only help ensure longevity to previous investments of the concrete pad and new netting for the cage. This year’s fundraiser will include raffles, with your choice of an iPad (16GB/wifi), a 46 inch Vizio LD HDTV, or $500 in cash. Tickets are available for $10 (in advance or the day of the event). Food and drink (draft beer) will be included in your donation, and the SU Men’s Basketball team is playing Virginia on the big screens starting at 4 PM. Whether you have a child participating in our league, are an alum, or a friend of SSALL, we hope to see you on the 1st.
