Brewers' Yelich, AmFam Insurance and others team up to improve Beckum Stapleton Little League ballfields
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Milwaukee Brewers MVP Christian Yelich and American Family Insurance announced Monday, Sept. 20, they've teamed up to support Beckum Stapleton Little League by upgrading the league’s ballfields, specifically repairing dugouts and replacing fencing.
Beckum Stapleton is a nonprofit, volunteer organization with deep roots on Milwaukee’s North side, providing supervised baseball opportunities for the youth ages 6-14 years old since 1964. Beckum Stapleton Little League has served more than 25,000 youth since its inception.
Additional donations of equipment and clothing will come from Associated Bank and Nike.
“I know how much the Beckum Stapleton Little League means to the kids who play there,” said Christian Yelich. “I’ve asked my partners at American Family Insurance, Associated Bank, Nike and the Brewers Community Foundation to join in helping to improve the fields so the players continue to have a great place to play baseball. I’m happy that we can make this contribution to a great member of the Milwaukee community. There’s more to come.”
The upgrades will be ready for next spring's opening day.
Meantime, Yelich and American Family are continuing to look for more opportunities to work together to support the Milwaukee community.
