Warren Resources, Inc. firmly believes in being a team player in our surrounding community. For this reason, Warren proudly sponsors John Mendez Baseball Park, whose mission is built upon teamwork and a safe and healthy atmosphere for all. John Mendez Baseball Park programs focus not only on teamwork, but also sportsmanship and community service. Young children and teens in the city of Wilmington are provided with a place to come after school. A place to be kept safe, challenged, and ultimately, respected.
Not so very long ago, Harbor Community Development was struggling financially and risked losing the baseball parks, and with it, the smiling faces of the children that came ready for a game. When Warren was informed of these financial troubles, we did not hesitate to come to their aid. We purchased the lots and leased them back to Harbor Community Development for just a dollar a year. It is our way of giving children in Wilmington a place to go, a place to grow, and a place to carry out America’s favorite pastime.
We enjoy supplying children with the gear and uniforms they need to make their favorite sport come to life. Our efforts have dramatically increased the amount of children that are able to participate in the baseball program. We are the fans next door, a friendly neighbor, and count ourselves lucky to take part in the growth of each child. We are not worried about whether or not the children of Wilmington know who we are as they crack the ball down centerfield and run to catch first base. We know who they are, and that is all that matters.
