Last year, LSTAA joined with MABA to create tournament baseball teams at the 8 through 11 year old levels called the Middletown Mudcats. In its 2nd year, several young baseball players from LSTAA are on these teams and they are looking to raise money for the program.
Come out this Wednesday, April 9th and enjoy some pizza at Roberto’s Pizza, 23 S Union St in Middletown from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and help support the program. 10% of all orders go to the Mudcats program.
In order to give proper credit to the Mudcats, you will need to bring this flyer with you. To download the flyer, click HERE.
Thank you in advance for your support of the Middletown Mudcats!
