Thanks to Morton Dental Center!

MYBA would like to welcome our newest Grand Slam sponsor this year. From now on, Field 2, will be referred to as Morton Dental Center field.
 
A special thanks to MYBA and MHS baseball alum Dr. Pete Smidt for offering to sponsor Field 2. Dr. Pete has a great legacy with Morton Baseball and we are happy that he has offered to help the next generation of Morton Baseball players. Thanks Dr. Pete and we will see about getting that sign in the outfield where that first home run was hit when you were 9 years old. ;)
