HARTWICK SEMINARY – Greg Holstine, a Cooperstown Dreams Park umpire, convinced Brewery Ommegang to match amounts raised from fellow umpires to benefit the Cooperstown Food Bank.

Today, Holstine showed up at the Town of Middlefield brewery with the first $150, Ommegang spokesperson Allison Capozza reports.

One of the other umpires, who is scheduled to be at the Dreams Park for the entire summer, has offered to keep this going every week for the whole season, said Capozza.

“I think this is a wonderful thing for these visitors to do for our community,” she said.
