The Hawks Nest Initiative is Underway

Every year the Nor-Gwyn Hawks 12u Tournament Team raises funds to play in a special, week-long, baseball experience at Cooperstown Dreams Park in Cooperstown, NY.  The team holds various fundraisers throughout the previous year and off-season to make this fantastic opportunity happen.  Due to this year's unprecedented pandemic, Cooperstown Dreams Park canceled all tournaments, including the one our Hawks were scheduled to attend in August. With all of their fundraising efforts completed and no Dreams Park to attend, the 2020 12u families, led by Manager Ryan Agriss, have chosen to put their remaining funds into a brand new 40’ x 70’ Batting Cage Pole Barn. This donation, combined with another Nor-Gwyn family member's private donation, has gotten us 80% of the way to make this project possible.  

The new, open-sided, roofed pole barn will be located in the same footprint as our current batting cages between Hostelley Field and Ronald Moyer Field, (F1). The pole barn will have four hitting tunnels, a soft toss/tee work tunnel, and an enclosed pitching training area.  The Hawks Nest is scheduled to be completed by Opening Day 2021. 

While the 2020 12U Team couldn’t fulfill their own Dreams Park dream this year, they will leave a legacy for many years to come and give current and future Hawks something to help make their dreams happen. At a very young age, they are learning a great and valuable lesson in giving back so others can benefit. So in 2021, if you see any one of these Hawks, please thank them and let them know how much you appreciate their generosity!

On behalf of Nor-Gwyn Baseball and it's families, we would like to express our thanks to the 2020 12u Hawks for this particular project.
