New Scoreboard for Baseball Field Donated

Don Wilson '79, Brandon Copple '01, Brent Suing '00, Harley Swanson
A few  people were on hand before the Mount Michael Junior Legion Baseball game against Blair on Wednesday evening to accept a generous donation from Copple Chevrolet-GMC of Louisville for the new scoreboard. Copple helped Mount Michael Baseball and the Mount Michael Booster Club by holding a "Home Run" Test Drive Event at Mount Michael on May 3rd during which $20 was donated for every test drive taken. Over 150 test drives were taken by families, friends and alumni of Mount Michael, but the Copple's generously donated additional funds to round up to the $4000,00 needed to complete the scoreboard project! On hand were (L-R) Don Wilson, out-going Booster Club President; Brandon Copple '01 of Copple Chevrolet;  MM Head Baseball Coach Brent Suing '00;  and Harley Swanson, Booster Club Board Member. Also on hand were in-coming Booster Club President Bill Miklas and his wife Gina, also a Booster Club Member.

Many thanks go to Brandon and Bob Copple, the Mount Michael Booster Club and the Mount Michael Baseball Program.
