Baseball Scholarships Needed for East Nashville Children

For many years, Jess Neely Athletics at Shelby Park has provided East Nashville children with a quality baseball program at VERY low cost. This year, due to the economy, many parents are reporting their children will not be able to play because they cannot afford the $90 fee. The $90 fee provides players with uniforms (hat, shirt, belt, pants, socks), umpire fees, insurance, equipment, & more for the whole season -- typically 20 games.

Jess Neely Athletics is seeking donations to sponsor children to play baseball. If you would like to sponsor one or more children, or even provide a partial scholarship, you can make your check payable to Jess Neely Athletics and either deliver to the ball fields nearest Shelby Bottoms on Saturdays from 10-3 or contact Jess Neely's Assistant Baseball Director, Rev. Jay Hartley, at Eastwood Christian Church.

You can also mail your check to:

Eastwood Christian Church
Attn: Rev. Jay Hartley
1601 Eastland Ave
Nashville, TN 37206
Phone: 227-2285

Thanks so much!

Play ball!
