The Slydawgs 12U baseball team will be traveling to Cooperstown, New York, June 21-28, 2019. Ernie Cota, Head Coach, and coaches John Gorham, Aron Bunting, Jason Stump, and Spencer Albin will drive the team by bus to play at Cooperstown.
The team has been together since the 2012-13 season. Three of the original members still play on the team.
Team parent Corrie Wolff explained the trip has been a long-time goal of the team.
“It has been a dream of the team to play in one of the most respected and sought-after baseball experiences in the nation. They had talked about it for years aiming to get there when they turned 12U which is the only age group that plays Cooperstown. We hope that this experience will give them memories that will last a lifetime and continue to grow the bond they have as teammates and friends,” Wolff said.
The team has been actively fundraising, hosting pizza sales, gift card raffles, and other efforts, and welcomes any form of sponsorship, which could include monetary donations to offset some of the costs, or donations of snacks, drinks, and supplies for the road trip.
