5 years ago this year, we lost one of our traveling baseball players to a car accident. Joey Balistreri was that player. He was a player that absolutely loved the game and always came to the field with a big smile, a will to win, and a great attitude. A little over a year ago, we started talking about doing something to remember Joey and the game that he loved. Fundraising efforts started last year at the Burnsville Tournament by selling bracelets and JB stickers in order to raise the funds needed for the memorial. Now the time has come to place the memorial for Joey and to remember him as a great kid and player. Tuesday, May 19th is the day that the memorial dedication will take place at Neil Park between the two baseball fields. The actual dedication of the memorial will be 6:30 P.M., but we will start to gather any time after 5:15 PM for a time of socialization. Hot Dogs and juice will be served….please come and share this time with friends. We encourage all teams to come and to wear your jersey in honor of Joey.
