Episode 7 – Tonya Petrunak, Executive Director of Baseballtown Charities for the Reading Fightin’ Phils

For this episode I’m joined by Tonya Petrunak, Director of Marketing and Executive Director of Baseballtown Charities for the Reading Fightin’ Phils.

Tonya returned to the team five years ago and in her position with Baseballtown Charities has recently helmed the development of the Savage 61 Dream Field, the first baseball field in Berks County that is designed specifically for children with physical and developmental challenges.

Traditional baseball diamonds are not suited for those with special needs whether it’s the uneven terrain, the change from dirt to grass, the mound in the middle, or even the raised bases. Instead Miracle fields are inclusive to all who wish to enjoy the great game of baseball.

April 21st was Opening Day for the Baseballtown Dream League as players, coaches, volunteers, sponsors, and the Reading Fightin Phils front office staff and players opened up the new facility. We get her impressions of that day and what the entire project has meant to her and the Fightins organization.

So sit back and enjoy episode seven of the Minor Conversations Podcast with my guest Tonya Petrunak of the Reading Fightin Phils.
