February Fee Payment Update

We are going to continue with letter writing campaign through the end of February.


The letter writing campaign has not came in as strong early on as in previous years. Be sure and change your letters to a February response date if your are just getting to sending these out. Please send out your letters or conduct your follow-up.


Thus far, 5/11 families have had a response to the letter writing campaign. We need full participation to make this work so there is no additional fee payment required in March. Should a March fee payment be required, it will be due in full by March 11.


Thank you, keep up the good work, we appreciate everyone working together.

Letter Writing Results

Week ending January 30 - $550

Week ending January 23 - $80

Week ending January 16 - $225

Prior to January 1 - $50

Fall Ball

Fall 2016: There will be a minimum of two (2) tournament weekends required. Most likely the fall tournaments would be at the end of August and one in September. These dates WILL Be set once fall schedules are published by USSSA.

Signage Sales at GC Field

Our team needs to sell two (2) signs at GC Field. The sponsorship of the signage is $500 and includes production and design. We use a similar design (as show picture right) for all signs at the field. The sign will be up at the field from March through October.


We have a renewal of Marshfield Chevrolet that Wayne Bushnell will be working. But, we have one (1) more sign for sure our team needs to sell.


The sale of the signage, after production costs, will result in 50% of the funds going to our team budget and 50% going to the field improvement fund for facility and equipment needs. We will be purchasing $1,200 of top dressing for the field in February and the funds from signage will go toward this field maintenance project.


If you would please assist in identifying and selling this sign.

Springfield Mavs Baseball

The Springfield Mavericks are a competitive youth USSSA travel baseball organization and is a sports outreach program of Glendale Christian Church. The Mavs call Glendale Christian Field on the Glendale Christian Church campus its home.


The Mavs and member families have partnered to improve the land and baseball facility at Glendale Christian Church with the Springfield MO Little League so families and kids can enjoy the game of baseball.
