Local Meridian Companies Run the Bases for ‘Field of Dreams’ Softball Tournament FundraiserMeridian, Idaho, April 13, 2022
— Last Saturday, the Meridian Chamber of Commerce hosted their annual ‘Field of Dreams’ softball tournament to raise money for local graduating high school seniors to further their education. The ‘Field of Dreams’ event is funded by the food vendors, the teams that pay to play in the tournament, and the local sponsors like health and wellness company, Microbe Formulas.
Last year, the Meridian Chamber of Commerce was able to award five separate $1,000 scholarships to local high school seniors. Because of the continued support of local businesses, this year, they were able to award nine $1,000 scholarships to graduating students in the Meridian high school area pursuing higher education.
“We are overjoyed to see all of these local companies come out, and run bases for such a great cause!” shares Kiersten Ramussen, the Marketing and Communications Coordinator at the Meridian Chamber of Commerce. “The Meridian Chamber wouldn’t be able to raise the funds for these scholarships without the help from sponsors like Microbe Formulas, which is why we are very grateful for their constant support.”
Microbe Formulas took on local company and last year's champion, Jacksons Food Stores, on Saturday at 12:00pm MST. In a close game, Microbe was eliminated with a score of 20 to 16 at the bottom of the 5th inning. This is the second year that Microbe has been beaten in the first round, although team members still walked off with smiles from supporting a great cause. The tournament continued throughout the day with Idaho Central Credit Union winning the championship game at 6:45pm.
Microbe Formulas co-owner, CTO, and head softball coach Ryan Riley says, “It’s always a blast supporting the ‘Field of Dreams’ softball tournament. The energy from all of the companies playing, the competitiveness between teams, and of course knowing that it is supporting local high school students is what makes this event one of my absolute favorites. Microbe will be back next year and ready to get the championship trophy.”
