2nd Edition: November 2019

One Complex, One Community

Melrose Incarnation Baseball is a community of families and players who share the three fields at The Inc every spring from April through June. While we have a fantastic group of coaches and parents, the learning our players receive cannot be limited to what they receive on the field. This newsletter, "Field 4", is our way of connecting with Inc families and finding ways to expand kids' exposure beyond The Inc and into neighborhoods, backyards, and dinner conversations across Melrose.
