Milwaukee Brewer's Little League Nights Fundraiser

The Brewers have designated Jun 15, Jul 8 & Jul 20 for their Little League Nights this year; you can choose to attend any night(s) that fit your schedule.  Due to COVID, there is not an opportunity for GLL players to walk the warning track this year but it is still a nice opportunity to see the Brewers with your GLL friends and send a portion of the sale of each ticket back to GLL.

Please click HERE for details on ordering tickets.


Lakeshore Chinooks GLL Night Fundraiser

The Lakeshore Chinooks are sponsoring a GLL night when the Chinooks will play the Rockford Rivets at Kapco Park @ 6:35pm, Jun 18.

For $18, you will receive a game ticket, hot dog, chips and soda/water; this is a great value!  In addition, a portion of the sale of each ticket comes back to GLL.

GLL families will be seated together in one section.  If we purchase 50 tickets, GLL players will get to play one inning on the filed prior to the game; if we purchase 100 tickets, players will get to play 7 innings on the field. 

Please come out and enjoy a Chinooks game with other GLL families and watch one of our GLL Alumni (Tommy Lamb) play for the Chinooks.

Please save the date for now, ticket ordering instructions will be made available next week.

 

2022 Board Positions

It is not too early to start thinking about volunteering for our 2022 Board of Director positions.  We are always looking for new volunteers to step forward to help lead and improve our organization.

Please see the Board of Directors page on our website; if you have any interest or questions about any of the positions, please feel free to reach out to any current GLL Board Member.


GLL Fields Complex

We continue to make progress developing our Little League fields at 2596 Cheyenne Ave.

We still have many ongoing needs including: facility upkeep, 4th field, practice fields, restrooms, concessions building, equipment shed, parking lot, power, water\sewer, etc.; you get the idea.


We continue to search for sponsors and contributions that can help us continue our build out.  If you are able to help in any way with equipment, services or other donations, please contact Jerry Faust.

Please consider volunteering to help with this project; your efforts will be a legacy for our community for decades to come.



Sincerely,

Greg Schaefer
GLL President
