Clinton Eagles, Sweet Mae's Ice Cream Shoppe Team Up for Donation to Clinton Youth Baseaball

The Clinton Youth Baseball Association will be able to continue its progress towards new dugouts thanks to a contribution from a Clinton non-profit and a Clinton business.


The Clinton Eagles and Sweet Mae's Ice Cream Shoppe teamed up over the last month-plus to raise money for the Clinton Youth Baseball Association. Sweet Mae's Ice Cream Shoppe owner Melissa Morris explains she baked cookies and they were raffled off and which allowed them to raise over $2100 on top of a $300 contribution from The Eagles.



Dave Brunning is the President of the Clinton Baseball Association and explains as they raise the money, they are gradually working across the complex on Clinton's east side to replace the dugouts at each field.



Brunning explains once the 8-U dugouts are replaced, that will be the final major project on the fields. He is appreciative of community support in recent years to allow them to purchase new scoreboards.


Brunning notes the sign-up deadline for this year's youth baseball season has come and gone but encourages parents that may be interested in their children playing next year to subscribe to the league's newsletter so they will be aware of when the sign-ups come around in 2024.

Morris is putting the call out for parents or community members that may be interested in helping the youth baseball league build the dugouts. She notes the more volunteers they have, the less the cost is on the association.
