Jim Thome Visits Jim Thome Park

The newest park in Rockford – namely the Jim Thome Park is home to a little league baseball field that was funded in part by a Youth TWINS grant. Former Twins player Jim Thome visited the park today and took time to field many questions from the youth baseball players. Chris Hudlow and Steve Yakesh of the Rockford Area Athletic Assocation (RAAA) presented Jim Thome with a Rockford jersey and baseball cap as a token of their appreciation.  We are so proud of this field and all the work that RAAA put into building it for the children.
