T-ballers turn!
We got our first automatic payment from the ongoing can drive at Colonie Beverage! We figured becuse Tball technically falls under the new bats rules, we would purchase a few USA stamped bats to have on hand for the little guys trying out the sport for the first time! Keep bringing those cans and bottles to Colonie Bev on Central Ave (simply drop off, tell them it's for us and they do the rest)... we have lots of ideas for the next check!
