My name is Drayton Harris, and I just recently turned 12 years old! I have been playing baseball since I was
3 1/2 yrs. old.  I can throw a mean 4 seam fastball!  I am raising money for a trip with my team to Cooperstown, NY to play in a week of tournaments against teams from all over the world, at the Cooperstown  All Star Village! Cooperstown is home of the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame!

 I currently play club ball with 12U AAA, Buzz Baseball Navy out of Rockwall, TX.  I work really hard in school to make good grades and give 110% in everything I do! I love baseball!  I would play baseball everyday if I could.  I help my Mom and Step-Dad with chores at home.  Some of my  responsbilities at home include taking care of our barn full of animals. We have a horse, donkey, two goats and a potbelly pig name Wilbur!   My goal now is to play high school baseball then move to college ball then the PRO's! My favorite team is the Texas Rangers and my favorite player is Josh Hamilton!  I'm excited that my went team went to the World Series two years in a row!!! I don't have much money so I am asking help from all who want to see me have a once in a life time experience to play in Cooperstown NEW YORK!!   All participants at the Cooperstown Dreams Park are inducted into the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame and we get a commemorative Little Leaguer's ring too! 

Our registration was received, and our dates have been confirmed: 

Cooperstown All Star Village
June 23-29, 2012

 GO BUZZ NAVY!!!!  

For more information on the tournament, visit: http://cooperstownallstarvillage.com/

The money collected will go towards transportation for me for the trip to Cooperstown, and registration fee for the tournaments.  My Mom's expenses are separate. 
 
We are working hard with fundraisers!  My Mom has been working concession stands, recycling cans, etc.

Supporters can also help by spreading the word to get more supporters!  Meeting my dollar goal!!!  ANY DOLLAR AMOUNT IS REALLY APPRECIATED! 

               PLEASE HELP MY DREAM COME TRUE!!!!

Thank you!!
