Indians Appeal For Help
Wednesday, 03 October 2012

October 3-- Coach Greg James of the Vidalia Indians baseball team issues an appeal to help build a batting facility.

"We need your help!  First of all, we would like to thank you for all your contributions to the baseball or softball program as a player at Vidalia High School.  You helped build a program that is well respected all over the state of Georgia.  Our programs have always been one that is well respected for the way the game of baseball and softball should be played.  We have been two of the most consistent and successful programs in the state for many years.  Many schools have used our program as a model to help in building theirs.

     Over the last few years many of these same programs have moved ahead of ours as far as facilities.  Our playing field is as good as any.  It is the extras where we have fallen behind.  Many schools in our area and on our schedule now have covered or enclosed hitting facilities to use whenever needed.  This is where we need of your help.  We are in need of financial help or anyway you feel you could contribute to help make it possible that our players have access to the same type facility.  Our baseball and softball teams would use this facility and it would be used year round.

     All we have ever asked for is that our student athletes have a level playing field.  On days of inclement weather we still have to find a gym or either we have to call off practice when other programs are getting their work in by utilizing their indoor facilities.  This has put our team as a big disadvantage the past few years.

     The All Sports Booster Club is willing to put up $20,000 toward the project.  We need to at least match this with donations and other fundraisers to help make it possible.  We are asking for a donation of $100 from former baseball and softball players.

     You may contact Coach Greg James, Coach Brad Thompson, Mr. Lynn Moore or Mr. Darren McClellen for more information or to make a donation.  The baseball and softball players, present and future would really appreciate anything you could do to help.

     Once again we are asking for your help in making an indoor hitting facility a reality at Vidalia High School.  Any help would really be appreciated.  Remember our saying, Once an Indian, Always an Indian!"

Thank you for Your Time,

Indian Baseball Team and Coaching Staff and Indian Softball Team and Coaching Staff
