We will be selling Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and drinks to raise money for these precious families. So, bring out your families and friends for a great night.

The Washington City Little League is a community of baseball and softball players, coaches, and families who share a love for the game.

Waldrop Family

One of our families, the Waldrops, needs our support in this difficult time.

Hope Waldrop, mother of three Little Leaguers and wife of a Little League coach, passed away from liver cancer on December 18, 2022. She was a devoted and cheerful presence at the fields, always cheering on her children, Whit, Jack, and Zoe, who played baseball and softball for Washington City. She was also a supportive partner to her husband Mike, who coached teams over the years.

Hope was more than just a baseball mom. She was a woman of faith, a teacher, and a community leader. She had a master’s degree in elementary education from the University of Mississippi and became a National Board-Certified classroom teacher. She taught school in Tennessee and Mississippi before moving to Utah in 2011. She also helped found the Classical Conversations homeschool organization in St. George and served in various ministries with the Desert Ridge Baptist Church.

We want to honor Hope’s memory and help her family with the expenses of her funeral and medical bills. That’s why we are organizing a fundraiser in conjunction with our homer derby.

Please join us in showing our love and appreciation for the Waldrops. They have been part of our Washington City Little League family for over a decade and they deserve our support and gratitude. Let’s make this fundraiser a success and celebrate Hope’s life and legacy.

She is always putting her children first and ensuring that they have everything they need to succeed. Becca has a positive attitude that is infectious, and she approaches life with a sense of optimism and grace that inspires those around her. She is a great friend to anyone she meets, always willing to lend a listening ear or offer a kind word.

She has fought with determination and courage for the past five months, and her spirit and tenacity are truly admirable. Becca is full of love, perseverance, and hope, and she is a shining example of what it means to live life to the fullest, no matter the circumstances.

Safety for Baseball Players and Spectators Promoted by Tolman Rogers’ Eagle Project

After observing multiple pedestrians at the Washington City Baseball fields almost getting hit by cars last spring, Tolman Rogers had an idea for his Eagle Scout project. He noticed the red paint on the curbing had faded. At night, it is hard for drivers to know where to park, since the paint was hard to see. With the help of 36 people in the community, the “no parking” areas on the curbs of Community Center Drive and Park View Drive were repainted.

Please be aware of safe places to park at the ball park and watch for pedestrians.

Tolman Rogers is a member of the Boy Scouts of America Troop 212 in Washington UT. One of the requirements of a Boy Scout to achieve the Eagle rank, a scout must carry out a project that benefits a religious institution, a school or community.
