It has been a few years since The Bayside Police Department has been able to provide baseball cards to children. We are happy to say that Funjet Vacations, headquartered in Bayside, has donated the funds necessary to distribute Brewer baseball cards to our youth. Thirty members of The Milwaukee Brewers, including Coach Ken Macha will be featured on a rotating schedule beginning the week of May 25th and going through August 31st.
we encourage parents to challenge their children to try and collect as many different cards as available. Two different cards will be distributed each week. The first cards feature Pitcher Jeff Suppan and Pitcher Jorge Julio. As officers patrol the streets, have your kids give us a wave. If we are not on our way to a call, we will gladly stop to give them the latest cards. Make sure your children know not to approach an officer while they are writing a citation, appear to be conducting an investigation, or are operating the emergency lights.
Milwaukee area police departments have been distributing baseball cards since 1982. The program has always been a major league hit with kids. We look forward to meeting your kids this summer!
