Great Valley Little League has a sponsor I just can’t get my head wrapped around.
It’s Energy Transfer Partners.
Of course one of the ironies I see is isn’t this the company that caused the destruction of a little league field in its original location in Exton? Or am I incorrect?
Anyway right or wrong, to me, this is blood money. Here’s hoping those parents can find better sponsors in the future.
What you say is true, but did you leave out “ Young baseball and softball players opened their spring season last weekend on Exton Little League’s new fields, located in the new Boot Road Park North in West Whiteland Township.
The park, across the road from the original Boot Road Park, was made possible by Energy Transfer, which is installing the Mariner East 2 pipelines in West Whiteland Township and surrounding areas.
“The league has been planning to upgrade our existing fields across the road for years, and without the help of Energy Transfer, it would have been a long time before it came to fruition,” said Exton Little League President Dave Stevenson. “After our 2020 season was cancelled due to the pandemic, it was amazing to be able to celebrate the start of the 2021 season on brand new fields.”
John it wasn’t “made possible“ it’s because they destroyed the other field they had to pay for it. It doesn’t matter how they spin it that’s why the fields came about. I still remember when these pipeline people originally came to town and they told people they would only be here for like three or four months and then they’d be done
Quoting…“The league has been planning to upgrade our existing fields across the road for years, and without the help of Energy Transfer, it would have been a long time before it came to fruition,” said Exton Little League President Dave Stevenson.”
It seems to me that overall the League feels the end result was positive.
Nothing is positive with the blood money of Energy Transfer
Well said Carla. They have polluted, poisoned, and disregarded the health of so many Penna. residents, human and wildlife.All in the name of plastic profits, esp manufactured in Scotland.
