Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen is one of the latest amazing gastropubs to sprout up here in San Diego.

As one of our sponsors, they have offered to host a fundraiser day for the families of Mira Mesa Girls Softball by donating a portion of all sales made to those who mention the fact they are with Mira Mesa Girls Softball.

It’s that easy! Go to Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen, make sure to tell them you’re with Mira Mesa Girls Softball, and they’ll donate a portion of your bill to the league!

Although it’s not required, we would really like to see some participation and have everyone wear their Mira Mesa Girls Softball uniforms and related gear and snap a picture with your server, or the bartender, or the manager on site. Post the picture to your preferred social media platform, check-in to Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen, and make sure to tag the post with #mmgsoftball and #legacybrewing.

Families, swing by with your kids for lunch! Parents, stop back in later that evening for a drink!

Just remember to let your server know you’re with Mira Mesa Girls Softball so we can benefit from Legacy’s amazing generosity!

Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen is located at:
7060 Miramar Rd #100

Speed To Enhance Performance Academy (STEP Academy) is the premier speed, agility, and conditioning instructional training program in greater San Diego County.

As one of our sponsors, they are offering an amazing deal of $5.00 per participant for this clinic to the girls of Mira Mesa Girls Softball. Be aware, this is a fraction of what they normally charge for clinics at this level.

Although the instructors at STEP Academy are professionally certified to work with athletes of all ages and levels, keep in mind this is an intense clinic that will push the limits of your child’s ability and discretion should be used if considering this clinic for T-Ball and 8U players.

If you plan to attend, please email Sponsorship Coordinator, Paul Phruksukarn, at mmgs.media@outlook.com with “STEP Clinic” in the subject line.

If you have any questions regarding the clinic, contact STEP Academy Coach Brian Moore at 619.840.3884.

In Review: Weekend of 02/28/16

In addition to the games scheduled, Sunday February 28, 2016 proved to be a busy weekend!

STEP Academy
The day started at 10:00am with our “Dynamic Warm-up and Stretching” clinic hosted by the amazing coaches over at STEP Academy. Coaches Rod and Brian instructed our MMGSoftball participants on various warm-up drills to work on in the interests of getting ready to play and prevent injury on the field. The workout lasted at least 75 minutes and we are EXTREMELY PROUD that every single one of our girls made it through with no complaints! They gave total effort and got an excellent workout that they can continue to use in the future and share with their teammates.

Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen
What’s follows a great workout? A good meal, of course. We are thankful to Legacy Brewing Tap & Kitchen for hosting an ALL DAY fundraiser for Mira Mesa Girls Softball. Their only requirement was for families to come in and tell their server they were with Mira Mesa Girls Softball and a portion of every one of those bills was donated to MMGSoftball. The food is excellent for the family and they have a great selection of craft brews for the parents. Make sure to visit this wonderful establishment frequently for their exciting gourmet menu items and to thank them for supporting our kids!
