The funds will help families of low- to moderate-income with the costs of fees, uniforms and equipment their children need to play baseball. The nonprofit was created in 2021 with a single mission to provide a scholarship fund that helps children in the Hot Springs community pay for registration and equipment.

Franklin Bass, Arvest Community Bank President in Hot Springs, was joined by Branch Administrator Vanessa Ferrell and Community and Business Relationship Advisor Stephanie Heffer in presenting the check to Majestic Park General Manager Derek Phillips, Board Member Amos Gray, Assistant General Manager John Muldoon and Assistant Director of High Impact Movement Kenneth Merriman.

“We’re honored to support Majestic Park in providing opportunities for young baseball enthusiasts in realizing their full potential and achieving their dreams,” said Bass. “Sports provide opportunities for exercise, teamwork and community connection. We believe every child should have the opportunity to play sports, regardless of their economic background.”
