Brand New! Clutch Hitters Community Outreach Program

Clutch Hitters led by John Barta and Jim Hanson have created a new outreach program as a way of giving back to our local communities. The plan is to incorporate 3 or 4 events a year that our players have a chance to sign up and volunteer time and care in making people's lives better. "I have always said that I think we have the greatest kids in our program. I think its past time that we go out and show that by giving back to our local people in need" Jim Hanson

Please feel free to contact John with any idea's that you may have.
