The Poughkeepsie 12u Lightning is travelling to Branson, Missouri July 31 to August 12 to compete in the Cal Ripken World Series! How exciting is that!? These 12-year-old kids are terrific ball players and it is thrilling to watch them in action and root for their success. Jake Manco and Dan Collins stopped in the studio to tell us about their trip and their GoFundMe page to raise the money to offset the costs for this trip. The boys and their families have been fundraising for over a year now, but they still are in need of financial assistance. If you'd like to help, visit here.
We will all be kept in the loop about their games during the Series, and will have reports for all of you on the Morning Show.
Let's Go! Poughkeepsie Lightning!
