WALLA WALLA — The Walla Walla Sweets and Ace Hardware of Walla Walla and Milton-Freewater are partnering for the 2013 season to give area youth sports teams a Team of the Week promotion, presented by Ace Hardware.
Youth sports teams in Walla Walla, Milton-Freewater and surrounding communities can apply to be the Team of the Week, and the teams who are awarded the honor will receive 15 tickets, 15 hot dogs and 15 sodas to a select Walla Walla Sweets game. They will be recognized on field during the game as the Ace Hardware Team of the Week, and have a digital picture of the team being honored emailed to the head coach to share.
The Sweets and Ace Hardware will select six teams during the 2013 season for the honor, with applications being accepted at both the Walla Walla and Milton-Freewater Ace Hardware stores, as well as the Sweets Shoppe in downtown Walla Walla.
Forms will be available at all three locations starting April 8.
“We are excited to welcome our friends at Ace Hardware to Borleske Stadium and to work with their team to create memorable opportunities for the youth sports participants in our community,” said Sweets vice-president and general manager Zachary Fraser. “It will be a fun way to recognize not only the athletes but the coaches who volunteer their time to teach and mentor youth.”
The Sweets open the 2013 season of West Coast League baseball on June 5 at 7:05 p.m.
The first Ace Hardware Team of the Week will be honored on June 6.
