We are in the process of starting a grant program under John’s name. Two things John loved were sports and providing children of all backgrounds with the opportunity to succeed. These grants will be provided to low income families to allow children to participate in sports that they would not normally be able to due to financial constraints. These grants will be strictly focused on providing the opportunity to play. We hope that John’s More Than a Game grants will allow young athletes to grow both on and off the field and provide them with an opportunity to succeed in an environment they may have not otherwise had. These grants will be focused on Necessities Only and will be focused on tuition/dues, uniforms and travel/lodging assistance. Players of all sports will be nominated by coaches and selected by a board. As we are still early in the process; please send checks made out to: Potomac Baseball Club Inc., 1060 French Road, Shenandoah Junction, West Virginia 25442
