Parkers Going PINK!

Thank you to all who participated in "Parkers Going Pink" in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Through the sales of the pink socks and mouthguards, we were able to raise $855 which was donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.   Thank you all from RPAC and Susan G. Komen.

Helping a family in need...

On Friday, July 6th, this amazing little five year old boy, Rocco, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain stem tumor called Pontine Glioma. This type of tumor is very aggressive and many thoughts and prayers are needed.

If you are able to contribute to help the family, details can be found by clicking Rocco's picture above.

IMPORTANT:  We have received a letter from the Police Department regarding parking issues at Baseball/Softball games and practices.  They will no longer give warnings to illegally parked cars, only tickets.  Please be mindful of where you can and cannot park around the fields, for the safety of our players and the sake of your pockets.


A LOOK BACK IN RPAC HISTORY

Dirk Edmiston played on the first Ridley Park baseball team, which his father Robert Edmiston (one of the founders of RPAC) also coached.   He shared this piece of history from his days of playing in the Ridley Park Athletic Club.  It is great story and photo! Click on the picture below for the full story.



Thank you Dirk, your photo and story are greatly appreciated!


OPENING DAY 2012 

Once again, Opening Day was a success and a great time for all!   The weather was beautiful, the games and festivities were fun, and the help was tremendous.
Thank you to the RPAC Board, coaches, volunteers, players, and fans who came out and made it happen.

Special thanks to Wawa, Swiss Farms, and Stroehmann for their generous donations,
which went a long way in keeping our players and fans fed and refreshed!


Lake Field Dugouts

 We would like to thank Rick VanVladricken for painting the dugouts at Lake Field.
