Thank You Coach Fuhrman


On a cold rainy Sunday afternoon, Coach Jim Fuhrman spent his time assembling the Brand NEW Softball Pitching Machine.  This new piece of equipment will be used to help train our girls to become even better softball players.

Thanks to volunteers like Coach Fuhrman, who spend their time volunteering for Oakland, our Recreation Program was rated as one of the top in the country.

Coach Fuhrman not only donates his time for a sport he has NO children participating in, he is also Oakland's Umpire Coordinator.  Oakland softball, as well as the Borough of Oakland says THANK YOU!!!
