This past Saturday, May 7th, players, coaches and families of Millet Minor Baseball gathered at the ball fields in Millet. Initially for team pictures with our brand new uniforms but then followed by their second annual bottle drive in the town of Millet. With the Fort McMurray fire disaster, the MMB board decided that 50 per cent of the bottle drive would go to the Fort McMurray Oil Giants minor baseball association of Fort McMurray. Baseball Alberta is also going to match our contribution.

It was so awesome to see our kids working so hard to help kids that won’t be able to play ball this year and have lost everything. Everyone really worked hard and pitched in.

Millet Minor Baseball would like to thank the following for helping us achieve our goal of getting new uniforms. It had been many years and we often heard parents say they wore the same uniforms that their children were wearing. It was definitely time.

The following are sponsors and donations we received in our 2015 season: McConnell Building Movers, Dee’s Pink Steel, Millet Liquor Store ‘n’ More, Evolution Sporting Goods, World Financial Group, Millet Ag Society, Millet Lions Club, Town of Millet, Fair Game Ball Team, SPN Amp’t Ball Team, Falun Bottle Depot, Millet Legion, residents of Millet who graciously donated their bottles and all the coaches, players, and parents and all who volunteered their time.

Come out and watch our players shine in their new uniforms Monday-Thursday at the Millet ball diamonds.
