With the Share the Glove youth equipment grant, Medford City Baseball will be awarded with softball equipment totaling a retail value of $2,500, which includes two sets of catcher’s gear, ten gloves, eight batting helmets, six bats and one bucket of practice balls.


The Northwoods League Foundation is celebrating the 25th season of the Northwoods League in 2018 by donating $50,000 in youth Rawlings equipment through 20 grants, one in each Northwoods League community.


The Northwoods League Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that serves as a vehicle to transform a shared passion for baseball into positive change and support for communities. The mission of the Northwoods League Foundation is to utilize the game of baseball to enrich the quality of life for children and families with an enduring and caring focus on Northwoods League communities.


The Wisconsin Woodchucks also believe that youth sports, such as baseball, are important to the youth in our community. Woodchucks owner Mark Macdonald says, “Youth sports are important to the development our children.  It was important for their interpersonal skill development.  They learned to work as a team supporting teammates and working toward a common goal.  Sports also taught them sportsmanship, honesty, fair play, empathy and humility.” Being able to give this grant out to a local youth sports organization will help more children participate in these programs.


Justin Hraby, of Medford City Baseball says, “We are very excited and fortunate to receive this equipment grant from this program. The Woodchucks are great supporters of ours and a big thanks goes out to them!”
