Click to Help Pittsburgh Little Leaguers

An essay by Pittsburgher Duncan S. is a national finalist in an essay contest sponsored by Briggs & Stratton called "Diamonds in the Rough." Youth baseball players across the United States nominated their baseball fields for
refurbishment. Duncan wrote about the flood damage caused by Hurricane
Ivan in September, 2004 to the Instructional Field at Avonworth
Community Park, in Sewickley. His essay is a regional winner, meaning that it has already earned a $5,000 prize towards refurbishment of the field. The grand prize winner will receive $20,000 to refurbish his/her field and a baseball clinic for the team from Hall of Famers Lou Brock and Carlton Fisk.

Let's help Duncan and the field at Avonworth. Go to the contest website and vote. Contest information is here. Thanks.
