Owensboro Eastern Little League at Chautauqua Park

I spent many years at Chautauqua Park with Owensboro Eastern Little League in the 90s'. My husband coached baseball there for many years. There's a very rich history associated with Owensboro Eastern. Many young men have learned the sport of baseball and many life lessons on the field. As a matter of fact, Chris actually coached some of the parents and coaches on the Owensboro Eastern 12U All-Star team. It felt nostalgic talking with them recently. #feelingold

Owensboro Eastern 12U All-Stars at Friday After 5

I actually had the chance to talk to the Owensboro Eastern 12U All-Star team at Friday After 5 and they're so very excited to make the trip to Florida and to play ball. They were also in fundraising mode to help offset the cost of the trip.



I touched base with Paige Sowders this morning and she shared, "We will be headed to Palm Beach Florida for the 12U Cal Ripken World Series on Friday. The first pool play game will take place on Saturday with the first game being played at 8:30. We have a game changer app that the community can follow during live gameplay (GAME CHANGER NAME: Owensboro Eastern 12U Allstars 2021).

You can follow the Owensboro Eastern Cal Ripken Baseball Facebook page with frequent updates throughout the week.  We are posting pictures of the Team throughout the week, basically a biography behind them in order to allow the community to get to know members of our team.

There are many ways that you can donate to the team. They're accepting donations through all sources: Venmo: @Otis-sowders, CASHAPP: $otissowders, Cash, Checks: Made out to Owensboro Eastern or you can Call 270-222-7950 and they can accept payment via card over the phone.

They also have the GoFundMe account at:

We are amazed by the love and support the community has given all of our boys. I am so proud to be able to call Owensboro my home. This past week, our boys have felt like celebrities, they can't believe people know who they are!", Sowders concluded.
