A Special Ball Diamond, Paying It Forward
I just wanted to share with you briefly about a special project underway in Minot ND to help the physically disadvantage enjoy the sport of Baseball. The "Dream Catchers" have sponsored baseball for the physically disadvantaged in Minot for some time but now they are fundraising for their own, handicap friendly field. They have been using the public field in South Minot but it isn't always so friendly. The picture above shows the special field that was installed in Fargo ND (300 miles away) for the same purpose.
The project is being spear headed by Harvey Herslip of Minot. The Dream Catchers were founded by Michelle Bliven. If you are a huge fan of Extreme Home Make-Over you may remember that they built a house for the Bliven Family. Michelle has been big in the Pay-It Forward department.
The cost of the project is estimated to be $240,000. Donations can be made to the Minot Park Board Foundation for the Dream Catchers Field or by contacting Harvey Herslip at 701-833-2503.
