Jackson Little League will be going to the La Crosse Loggers game on Sunday June 24th. Each Little League team will be able to sell tickets for the game. All players showing up to the Loggers game with their uniforms on will be able to take the field for the National Anthem. The 9 players that sell the most tickets will get to line up next to a Logger Player on the field. A board member of Jackson Little League will throw out the 1st pitch. Jackson Little League will get 50% of each game ticket sold. If we sell 400 tickets we will get 50% of the games 50/50 tickets sold. We will be presented with a check at the 7th inning stretch. What a great opportunity for young players to watch some great baseball and for our Little League Association to make some money for the next field project we plan on doing. Tickets can be purchased from Little League, Lunda Recreation Center and the Chamber of Commerce. For more information, contact Petey at the Parks & Rec. office.
