In an effort to offset costs associated with the routine maintenance of the Baseball Diamond for the Varsity Baseball program, Berkshire Athletic Director Brian Hiscox recently secured a $5,000 grant from the Cleveland Indians Charities for various field upgrades. Coach Hiscox intends on using these dollars for the upcoming 2019 Spring baseball season. The Cleveland Indians Charities is a self-sustaining charitable organization that concentrates on creative partnerships with select organizations in the community. Through fundraising, CIC provides the opportunity to jointly create and execute youth educational and recreational opportunities. These programs help young people learn to play the game of baseball, develop necessary life skills, learn responsibility, and develop confidence to face today’s hurdles. The Berkshire Local Schools commends Coach Hiscox for his creativity and diligence in securing this grant from the Cleveland Indians.
