Young Tewksbury Ballplayers Live Out Their Dream On Pro Field

FOSEK Titan Tee-ballers make the most of their chance to play at LeLacheur Field, the home of the Lowell Spinners.

The sign out front said "LeLacheur Field." But for the (FOSEK) , it was, without question, their field of dreams.

Last week, these young ballplayers, along with their "Buddy" players, had the chance to step out onto the home field of the Lowell Spinners and play a brief game before the Spinners' game that night.

Editor Bill Gilman was on-hand and captured these images.

Bill, Thank you for being there and posting these great pictures! Our kids had a great time and they had smiles all day. As I talked to our athletes during the Spinners game, they all mentioned how they played on the field like the Spinners! I would like to thank the Lowell Spinners and specifically Jon Boswell (Director of Media Relations) who worked with us to bring this together and help us raise funds with a raffle. The entire Spinners organization from owner Drew Weber to the interns were great. I would also like to thank Scott Winslow of Winslow Technology Group who's donation made it all possible. Scott sponsored the day for FOSEK and threw out the first pitch. Finally I want to thank the parents, athletes and buddies who enthusiastically came and dove into the idea. We at FOSEK do what we do with the help of great parents and buddies. Without them we couldn't run our sports programs for the most incredible athletes in the Merrimack Valley!

We have had several comments of appreciation from the families and friends of our athletes and I know this one memory that our athletes will remember forever.

Don't forget Titan Tee Ball plays for the next 8 Sundays (except Labor Day and Columbus Day Weekends) behind the Ryan School in Tewksbury, MA from 2pm til 3pm. Registration for FOSEK players is always open. Also, Fall Soccer plays on Saturdays from 2pm til 3 pm, also behind the Ryan School. Buddies that are willing to volunteer their time helping our athletes are always needed. Come have a ball! Lisa Gill Community Liaison FOSEK Sports
