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
Last project- Food drive for Hunger, 1/2-1/16 Food was delivered to the Open Door project in Eagan Thursday, January 17th. We donated over 320 ponds of food.
