Jr. Angels U12 - The Junior Angels compete in the South Central League and in ASA tournament competition. Our goal is to develop a team that can win regardless of the opponent or location.

Press box – pending board approval 8/26, $27,000 (Greenwood State Bank, Evansville Sports Boosters and donations), will start immediately after approval

Field drainage issues – 3 priorities, school will cover costs and/or labor donated except as listed below:
1. Field - Angels would need to pay for 3 rows of sod (baseline to baseline)
2. Mound – clay $500, would need to cover with tarp $600, will need training on how to use and maintain
3. Batter’s box – similar costs to mound (clay $500, tarp $600)
Angels already approved $1,000 donation
Angels voted to approve costs for #1 sod and #2 mound. We will do the batter’s box next year.

Charity/Heather
