$5,000 to Sutton Youth Baseball League
Millbury Savings Bank recently donated $5,000 to the Sutton Youth Baseball League (SYBL) to assist the organization in making significant improvements to its Hough Road fields.
SYBL Director and Coach Dana Mercure said some of the funds already were used to place outdoor carpeting on the organization’s Farm and Tee-Ball Fields, used by its three- to eight-year-old players. The money also will help fund construction of new batting cages, repair the existing batting cage, and add outfield netting to Lower Hough field.
Last year, Millbury Savings donated $1,000, which allowed SYBL to redo the turf on the two major/minor league fields, add a scorer’s and announcer’s box at each field, and repair the irrigation system that hadn’t functioned in a decade. All of these improvements enabled SYBL to host state tournaments for 20 participating towns last year.
“We know that youth sports are an important part of growing up, but that funds can be scarce,” said Robert J. Morton, the bank’s president and chief executive officer. “We’re happy to help Sutton Youth Baseball make a safe and enjoyable environment for our kids.”
