Former Sacred Heart baseball players, parents of athletes, and friends of the baseball program are asked to help the SHA Athletic Association make improvements to the SHA baseball complex on Lincoln Road in Mt. Pleasant.
Money is needed to completely replace the fencing at the field and repair some drain tile. Following the lead set by Major League Baseball, SHA is determined to increase the level of safety for fans and players. We want to ensure fencing meets the highest standards. We need to raise $65,000 to install new backstop fencing (dugout to dugout), along with new 6-foot-high fences along both foul lines. Also included in this project is new drain tile for behind home plate.
The SHA Athletic Association is asking former players, parishioners, parents and friends of baseball to consider a gift which would make this effort successful. Investments promote the tradition of Irish baseball for future players.
For complete information about the project, or for a “Swing for the Fences” giving form click here or stop by the church office. You can also contact Connie McCann, SHA Development Director, at (989) 772-1385 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parishioners and friends enjoyed the Sacred Heart Parish Fall Harvest Festival October 19. Thank you to those who helped make the event so successful and fun: the dinner and bartender crew, those that brought pies and bussed tables and the coordinators of the children’s games, teen time and the Cornhole & Euchre Tournaments. Our parish is blessed by the support of many.
