Bettendorf/Pleasant Valley Youth Baseball is hosting a fundraising baseball tournament this weekend (Saturday, May 15-Sunday, May 16).

Lots of service learning hours are available for local high school students. This also offers a great resume entry on college and work applications, with references available to our best volunteers!

Help also is appreciated by the general public to support the BPV’s three-pronged mission of A) providing community-based baseball to youngsters 6-20 regardless of financial need; B) offering college scholarships to our best and brightest high-school graduating BPV products; and C) raising funds for much-needed facility improvements, such as our 2021 special projects at Scheck Park/Tyler Hurd Field (several improvements along dovetailed with naming the field) and much-needed laser-grading at the Crow Creek 4-Plex.

Most of the help is in the concession stands/outposts, but there are also grounds crew spot available for the handiest.

Games run 8 am-8 pm Saturday and Sunday at Crow Creek Park, Devils Glen Park and Ed Scheck Park/Tyler Hurd Field. All time slots are available! Any help is appreciated!

To reserve a spot, or for more information, contact Steve Tappa at or 563-676-8111.

All proceeds from the BBC Slugfest go to the BPV’s program mission to make baseball better in our community!

SPECIAL NOTE: USSSA or high school-certified umpires also are needed and invited to apply for paid shifts of games. Please contact Steve Tappa at the above email or cellphone to inquire.

ADDITIONALLY: BPV has service learning hours & volunteer positions available this summer and fall that can be easily worked around other activities!

Help is needed in concessions each night at the Crow Creek Park 4-Plex or Devils Glen during the summer season.

A Fall Ball program features weekend games on Saturdays at the 4-Plex and Sundays at Devils Glen from mid-April to mid-October.

There also are several behind-the-scenes jobs available working with league, equipment and facility management.
