New Scorecard Installed Thanks to The Friends of Donny Higgins
Milton Girls Softball is excited to share that we have a new scoreboard at Cunningham Park. Due in large part to the donation of the Friends of Donny Higgins, we have installed a new scoreboard at Cunningham Park. The scoreboard will be ready for opening day and will be dedicated during our Opening Day festivities.
The Friends of Donny Higgins is a special charity that promotes local youth sports program and we are grateful for the contribution the organization has made to our program.
