Independence Park Work Day: Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013

From our Junior League Coordinator, Mark Mensheha....

MPTLL is seeking volunteers - both players and families - for some preseason field work at its home field for 13s and 14s, Independence Park, this coming Saturday, January 26, between 9am and 5pm. We’re proud to have a great facility like Independence Park as our 13/14 home, but the facility is in need of a little clean-up work before the 2013 season can begin.

We’ll hopefully have more volunteers than we have available equipment at the field, so if you can bring with you any of the following, the equipment will likely come in handy:

Work gloves
Gas-powered leaf blowers
Leaf bags
Circle hoe (to help pull weeds around the backstop area)
Cable ties (to close off openings in the fenceline)

In addition to the general facility clean-up work that the above tools will make possible, we’re hoping for some assistance with some “heavy-lifting” work. This includes work on our mound and catchers circle, as well as edging work around the infield.

We also have a potential painting project that will be available to us. If you’d be interested in that work, specifically, please let us know of that interest through the contact information below.

If you can offer a couple hours of your time on Saturday, it’d be greatly appreciated.

Questions: Mark Mensheha (
