New Westminster Little League Baseball asked me to help spread the word about an event they’re hosting tomorrow.

Their hometown baseball hero Justin Morneau, of the Minnesota Twins, is recovering from a recent round of surgeries and they’d like to send him some support. They’ve invited all baseball fans, little leaguers, New Westminster residents, and supporters to come out Saturday, October 1, 2011 to sign a “Get Well Soon” banner for Justin.

Morneau grew up in New Westminster and has shown continued dedication to grassroots baseball in his hometown. Each year the local baseball association receives new batting gloves from the MLB all-star and they also award post-secondary bursaries to three players courtesy of the Justin Morneau Scholarship Fund.

To participate in tomorrow’s event, stop by Justin Morneau Field at Moody Park (10th street between 6th Ave and 8th Ave) from 10:00am to 3:00pm.

More information is available on the New Westminster Baseball Facebook page.
