Retired Seat at the Corn Crib
The August 19th MCStrong Night at the Normal Cornbelters game brought in $5516.00 to the Michael Collins Foundation.
Money was raised via single game ticket sales, the 50-50 drawing and a sale of the MCStrong jerseys worn by all the Cornbelters. All enblazoned with #19.
They retired a seat in Michael’s honor that will never be sold again. And is located right behind the dugout of his beloved Heartland Hawks. A plaque in his honor will be hung at a later date at the VIP entrance. The McLean County Barn Quilt was on display that evening and will hang at the Corn Crib in his memory as well.
And in keeping with Michael’s theme of “Expect to Win” the Cornbelters beat the Schaumburg Boomers 7-4. After the game a great fireworks display was shot off all while some of Michael’s favorite songs played, and his picture adorned the centerfield scoreboard.
Thank you to the community and especially to the Normal Cornbelters for the great support!
