Good morning Sheriff,
This is Brett Cox and I recently read the story about the Ludlow Lions
Club Ball Field and it really upset me. My deceased grandpa Leland Bowyer first enrolled me to start playing baseball on this field when I was 4 years old and I then played 14 years after that and was a 4 time all star catcher in Chillicothe SPA. I created a gofundme account for the repairs of this field and I'm not sure how extensive the damage is but read that stadium lights were damaged and know that they're not cheap. I set the initial donation request at 20,000 and people in the community can go to this link and donate. I hope you get the word out and share this page and that the ball field gets the repairs it needs. I'm not sure how the website pays out the donations but will personally have everything forwarded to you to make sure the community gets these donations because I live in KC now. This story just tugged at my heart strings and infuriated me at the same time. Please spread the word, here is the link Steve, have a great day.
