How did Rea's Welding go above and beyond in their support of the EGCLLA?

​Prior to the 2013 season one of our field workers was dragging the field to prepare it for the season when the drag broke.  One of the hooks on the drag that attach the chain broke making the drag unusable.  Not having the drag would prevent our field worker from working the field and leveling out the uneven spots in preparation for our teams to practice.  Our field supervisor Brian Wendler took the drag to Rea's Machine & Welding to see if they could fix the drag.  

Not long after Brian dropped the drag off for repair he received a call that the drag was fixed and ready to be picked up.  When Brian went to pick the repaired drag up from Rea's he asked what we owed for the repair.  Brian stated that when he went to pick the drag up they would not accept payment for the repair, their reasoning was "it's for Little League".    

The support from people and businesses like Rea's Machine & Welding have made the Edwardsville/Glen Carbon Little League an outstanding organization in our community for over 60 years.  The EGCLLA is able to serve the youth of our community because of the "little things" that people and businesses do on a daily basis that go unnoticed, like fixing a drag.  
These "little things" make up a big part of the EGCLLA's ability to serve our youth.

Rea's Machine & Welding truly went Above & Beyond as a Friend of the EGCLLA.

I encourage anyone needing of expertise that Rea's Machine & Welding offers to contact them.
