Melanie Petty presents check to Little League President Dustin McLaren

The Atlantic Little League organization has received a $500 donation to support the youth’s activities. The monies were made possible through the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund, which also supports the Trevor Frederickson Baseball/Softball Clinic each spring held prior to their regular little league season.

Each participant receives a t-shirt with a motivational saying on the back. This year’s saying, “Don’t let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game,” was a huge hit with the players.

Frederickson, the son of Darrin and Melanie Petty of Atlantic and Gary and Kari Frederickson of Council Bluffs, lost his life in a 2009 residential fire in Council Bluffs.

Melanie Petty with the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund, says the organization looks forward to a continued partnership with Atlantic Little League, in the years to come.
