Help support one of our own

As early as 7 a.m. six days a week, Mark Bricker heads to Tijeras Creek Park, where he oversees three Little League baseball fields.
Bricker is charged with making sure the fields are ready for play, the electronic scoreboards are working and the leagues’ belongings are secured in bins when the games are completed.
Bricker has been doing all this for over a year despite the fact that he needs hip replacement surgery, which has made it difficult for him to move around.
His dedication to the Santa Margarita Little League program hasn’t gone unnoticed. Kevin and Diane Casebier, whose two sons played through the program from 2005 to 2012, have found a way to say thanks. They created a GoFundMe page to help pay for his surgery.
“This is a guy who can barely walk right now, but he’s still at the fields doing everything he’s always done,” said Diane Casebier. “Most people who bring their kids to the field…have no idea there is a guy doing everything behind the scenes making it happen.”
