COMO – Chad Bult of Como nominated the Como City Baseball fields for renovation through the Plant A Seed Program sponsored by the Frosted Flake Corporation but the days are numbered to make the next round of the contest.
Last year, the program helped renovate many fields across the US. Previously, the baseball fields in Como were a highlight to many of the local youth, but have been in need of repair for over 10 years.
“This field is important to the community because of all the memories we all have there, and it has always brought the community together,” stated Bult. “A baseball field is a place for so many different events. We have Trunk-or-Treat there at Halloween, and we have had fundraisers and family reunions there as well.”
To show support of this program, log onto their website at HYPERLINK "http://www.frostedflakes.com" www.frostedflakes.com.
The Como City Baseball fields must receive enough online votes to make the semi-final round of the contest. Click on the Plant A Seed tab and type in Como, Texas and search to locate and vote for the selection for Como with the most votes listed.
There is also a selection to post a comment about the fields. Or log on HYPERLINK "http://www.mySSnews.com" www.mySSnews.com, click on local sports and follow the link below this story.
The nominations only have 75 days, 21 hours, and 37 minutes to secure enough online votes to proceed to the next level of the contest. This program through the Frosted Flakes Corporation is dedicated in helping rebuild America’s playing fields.
In 2008, the Plant A Seed Program renovated several fields located near East Texas – Faulkner Park in Tyler,, Bryan Field in Whitney, and Benny Hatcher/Western Little League Field in Pine Bluff, AR.
Why does the City of Como need this?
“This field is in poor condition. The school finally built new fields, so the ones in downtown Como are not used as much. Everyone worked hard to keep it up when all our school games were played there. Now, it is used during ball season for different games and practices and for church tournaments, practices,” Bult continued. “I’m sure if we all take a moment to vote, it will help nurture the seed that has been planted, I'm quite sure the harvest would yield a lifetime of dividends for our community.”
There are several ball field nominations on the website, so it is imperative to vote for the Como fields as soon as possible.
Bult added, “As Tony the Tiger would say, ‘They're GRRREAT!’ Our children are great and this would be an unbelievable opportunity. Vote!”
