2023 Bases Loaded Gala Event
Edwardsburg Little League has served 4,700 local youth, ranging from 4-16 years old. This year alone we had record numbers with 507 players and 44 teams. Due to the expansion of our schools, EPS has notified us that they will be in need of the land that has housed our league for the past 40-plus years. Consequently, we are in the process of establishing our new home at the Edwardsburg Sports Complex (ESC) which is located at 27566 US 12.
As of August 2023, we have raised over $500,000 of our $800,000 goal. This amount includes the $105,000 that was raised at our BASES LOADED 2022 dinner auction. We hope to repeat this success at our BASES LOADED 2023 gala on Thursday, November 2, 2023! The current funds have assisted us in the following progress:
• The fields are leveled and marked
• Irrigation is installed and running.
• The outfield grass has been planted and looks great!
The last large item necessary to play is the fencing. We are currently $156,000 short of funds in that category. Additionally, the remaining $153,000 (for concrete and other building materials) will meet our $800,000 goal. In order for us to provide fields on which the kids can play, we need your help! We are very fortunate to have such a generous community and appreciate the wonderful support that we have received thus far. Thank you!
