Pahrump youth softball receives $2,755 from Batting 1.000 Classic

The Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliary presented a check for $2,755 to the Pahrump Youth Softball Association on Friday at Petrack Park, the group’s share of the proceeds from the Batting 1.000 Classic earlier this month.

“Proceeds are split between the Pahrump Youth Softball Association and the VFW Auxiliary,” explained the auxiliary’s president, Bonnie Darrell. “The donations toward the auxiliary will go toward the veteran community and to the VFW because we need a new roof. We have a few leaks.”

“The money we raise here goes toward buying equipment we need: bats, balls, whatever we need for the girls just to get the season going,” PYSA President Dom Sandoval said. “It helps to pay for uniforms. Over time, equipment breaks down, things get worn out. The girls tear them up every year, and this helps us buy new things to keep them going.”

Money was raised not by charging admission but by holding raffles for gift baskets and dinners at area restaurants, along with a “Fill the Glove” campaign at Walmart and Maverik for two weekends before the March 3 game at Petrack Park. The PYSA team defeated the VFW and VFW Auxiliary 12-11.
