We're nearing the end of Februrary baseball players. Do you know what that means?  Spring is right around the corner and we'll be heading outside soon!  If you have not aleady (and we hope that you have), get out that baseball equipment and get practicing!

Ethan is a graduate of MVHS where he was a member of the Varsity baseball team.

Ethan spent almost every evening this past summer at the baseball fields in Manchester volunteering his time with different age groups for Manchester Baseball Association program (MBA). We are pretty sure that if he is not in school, he is at the baseball fields assisting MBA where he can.  Ethan consistently works on the fields and has helped coach several teams for MBA this year and volunteered as a coach this fall. He is a terrific role model for these young players who relate well to him and look up to him.  He is knowledgeable and passionate about baseball and brings great energy to the program. 

Ethan is always giving back to the community by volunteering his time and we felt he deserved to be recognized!  Please join us in congratulating this extraordinary young man!
