ABOUT OUR BEAR CLAW!
Native Americans use symbols & designs to represent specific ideas or cultural expressions. The bear is a powerful guardian; physical strength & leadership! The bear symbolizes sweetness of life and introspection. The bear claw was used to summon the power of the animal. The bear tracks can signify strength and well being, leadership and authority.

I’m proud of our 9th annual toy drive for children’s hospitals!
Prospects Travel Baseball took a break from training this morning to deliver nearby 1,000 gifts to Comer Children’s Hospital.
Players from 9U through 18U made the trip and one photo has a small group of boys pointing to the red bumper on bus #1,
which is now nicknamed Rudolph One! Very fitting and I’m very proud of the character program delivered by the organization!
Thank you to all that participated and a shout out to 18U's Adam Brown for handling the bus music but you're fired, man. LOL!
