“It’s really tough raising money for two Pony League teams,” he said, but added that he is eternally grateful for the community support that he has received. “The Montpelier Parks Department, The Village of Montpelier, CK Technologies, 20/20 Molded Plastics, Moore Industries, the Montpelier Civic League, the Montpelier Fire Department,” he said; “without the help of these people, the kids would not have the chance to play the greatest summer sport.”
With the help of local businesses and organization, Bruce Miller is making sure that America’s Game is remaining strong in Locomotive Country. The Great American Pastime is alive, well and flourishing in Montpelier, Ohio.
