Mountain Ridge Now Able To Send Player Parents To World Series

( Las Vegas, NV )  No word on exactly how much money has been donated to the help parents of Mountain Ridge Little League players make the last-minute trip to Pennsylvania to see their kids play in their first game of the World Series tomorrow.

But Mountain Ridge President Kristi Black  said at last night’s event at their baseball fields they think they’ve at last gotten half their total goal of $60,000.

Stacy Watkins, the wife of one of the coaches, told KXNT, “It’s great to see the community get involved out here on the baseball fields. This community really comes together when we need them.”

Among the dozens of people who showed up to give money: Nevada 4th District Congressman Steven Horsford who says the Mountain Ridge team’s success is exciting and he wanted to do his part to help out. “They didn’t initially expect to make it to the nationalchampionship,” he said, adding, “to have them go and represent Nevada is a great thing.”

Their first game is Thursday afternoon at 4, Las Vegas time, against the Midwest champs from South Dakota.
