MARYVILLE, Tenn. (June 12, 2013) ― KenJo Markets, a BP Branded Marketer servicing BP stations throughout East Tennessee, presented a BP Fueling Communities donation of $20,000 to Maryville Little League, which helped pay for park improvements that were made just before the season began.

The baseball and softball league has nearly 900 players from Blount County that range in age from 5 to 17 years old.

The Little League motto encourages that “win or lose” you should always do your best. The values of teamwork, sportsmanship, hard work, and integrity are taught throughout the season.
Capital Improvements to the Facilities

A campaign to raise funds for these projects began at the beginning of the season to help with these costs.
