The Ishpeming Hematite girls fast-pitch softball team will be at Perkins Restaurant in Marquette on Saturday April 20 from 9:00 am until 3:00pm. And I, Mike Plourde, will be there too! Why?
The girls are part of a fun-raiser sponsored by Perkins Restaurant and Great Lakes Radio! I’m privileged to be one of the voices of Ishpeming Hematite sports…describing their games on 98.3 WRUP.
I’ve followed the sports careers of many of these girls and that has been fun and rewarding for me. They’re great people! Like most of us – they work hard and they play hard.
In fact, they will be working hard to make the money that is needed to play softball at Ishpeming.
After all; they are the beginning. This is the first year that Ishpeming High School has had a team. These young ladies are laying the foundation that will keep the team playing for years to come.
Personally, I always want to encourage these types of projects. And so I will be at Perkins to eat pancakes and tell people about the team and what they are accomplishing.
Come out to Perkins in Marquette on Saturday! Eat some pancakes. Meet the players. Say hello to me. Have fun! Encourage good stuff for our youth! And say hello to the Perkin’s staff as well.
