Frontier "Gears Up" Again This Year with Mariners Great Jay Buhner to Play Ball
--Communications Company and Mariners Hall of Famer Get Area
Little Leagues in Gear--
EVERETT, Wash.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Frontier Communications Corporation (NASDAQ: FTR) and former Major
League Baseball and Seattle Mariners great Jay Buhner are teaming up
again this season to provide gear for area boys and girls Little League
and youth baseball/softball programs. The "Get Your League in Gear"
program will provide $1,000 worth of baseball/softball gear and uniforms
to six lucky leagues in Washington state. Area residents can enter their
league to win this valuable fundraising prize by going to an area
Frontier retail store or visiting a Frontier tent at various youth
sports and community events.
Mariners Hall of Famer and all-star Jay Buhner is a partner in the
program. Buhner said, "One of the toughest things for youth baseball
leagues during these difficult economic times across the country is to
purchase new equipment and uniforms." Buhner continued, "Get Your League
in Gear is a great way to get the entire baseball community in
Washington state involved and help their league win $1,000 from
Frontier. A thousand bucks will buy lots of great equipment."
"Get Your League in Gear" is a program designed by Frontier in
partnership with 710-AM ESPN Seattle, 97.3 KIRO-FM and Kimmel Athletic
Supply Company to provide $1,000 to six local Little League and youth
baseball programs. New equipment and uniforms is the most important and
highest expense for leagues across the United States yet it is the
hardest for leagues to fund.
Frontier Senior Vice President and General Manager, Rich Klena said, "We
are excited about helping young little leaguers get the right equipment
so they can achieve their goals, dreams and just have fun out on the
ball field. Frontier believes in connecting with the community and this
is one way we do that."
The "Get Your League in Gear" program officially begins on April 13 and
will run through August 18, 2011. Fans can learn more about the program
by visiting www.frontierwa.com
or stopping by a Frontier retail store or a Frontier tent at area youth
sports and community events. You can also follow Frontier Communications
— West Region on Facebook. Six winners will be announced on 710AM ESPN
and 97.3 KIRO-FM on August 20.
