Bay City’s Southwest Little League team can keep its season going after receiving a $2,500 check from Bay City American Legion Post 18 Friday.
Post Commander Troy Stewart and his colleagues felt they had to do something after the theft of a safe in late June containing over $4,000 from the Little League office. Stewart noted the American Legion is a strong supporter of youth sports.
He added the check will supplement other donations made through a Go Fund Me account set up by the Little League.
The Southwest team consisting of 11-year-old All Stars won its district and is getting ready to compete in a sectional tournament that could propel them to the state championship competition.
