Special Olympics baseball received $500 from Grand Forks Realty, the group’s sponsor this year, which enabled Special Olympics  to buy new gloves for the players as well as a new catcher’s mask.  Also, Alpine Signs and Graphics donated the two signs hanging on the backstop acknowledging Grand Forks Realty. The players practice at Dick Bartlett Park. Some of the players are pictured with coach Andrea Yallits (left): Arjo, Noah, Sarah and Brogan.
