Muhlenberg Township Sports Association Receives $ 29,000 Grant for New Batting Fences and Cages
State Representative Mark Rozzi today announced a grant of $ 29,000 to the Muhlenberg Township Athletic Association for the installation of new fencing and batting cages.
Funding through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development was secured with the help of Rozzi, who is quite familiar with the sports association.
“Considering that I grew up here and have spent countless hours playing ball on these fields, I am more than delighted that DCED has approved this funding,” said Rozzi, who has represented Berks County’s 126th Legislative District since 2012 and resides in Muhlenberg Township.
“The improvements that will be made through this grant will not only have a direct impact on the children of this community, but I predict it will help some of us ‘older’ children to relive the magic of our youth as well. . I know I can’t wait to do some swings in the new cages!
Brad Coley of the Muhlenberg Township Athletic Association thanked Rozzi for helping secure the grant.
“We appreciate so much the work and Advocacy Representative Rozzi continues to do for our organization,” Coley said.
“He has been instrumental in the continuous improvements we have made at our facility and in the success we have experienced as an organization. “
