Thank you to Bills Pizza, Lola's, Pizza Peddler and Agostino’s for the pizza donations and Framingham Brueggers Bagels for their generous donation of bagels and cream cheese!
So many came out to cheer on the players and so many volunteered. We had a lot of fun and certainly a lot of laughs. Kids were busy with face painting, tattoos, nail painting and friendship bracelets when they weren’t busy cheering on their favorite team.
The Natick Men’s Softball League has continued to generously donate over the years. Thank you so much for your continued support.
