HONORS AND RECOGNITION

The MRP organization was honored on August 6, 2011, by the Lake County Captains with induction into its Wall of Champions. This recognition speaks volumes to the many players, coaches and commited parents who have been a part of MRP over the past few years. As we move towards season #5, I look forward to making even more strides toward providing youth in our community an opportunity to play competitive baseball in a positive instructional environment.
