Marcus Bird Horse Support Letter

Dear Members of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribal Council,

The Atlanta Braves are hosting their third annual Native American All-Star Showcase from June 7-9 at Truist Park in Atlanta, Georgia. This prestigious event assembles the top 50 Native American baseball players from tribes across Indian Country. Athletes who are selected, following a rigorous application and film analysis process, will partake in a professional-style workout conducted by Marquis Grissom’s skill development group on June 8. This will be followed by the nine-inning showcase game on June 9, held on the very field where the Atlanta Braves play. This event presents a remarkable opportunity for Native American athletes aspiring to play baseball at the collegiate level, providing them the chance to be noticed by college and professional scouts in attendance.

I am proud to inform you that my son, Marcus Bird Horse, a junior at Mandan High School and an enrolled member of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, has been selected to participate in this showcase as both a pitcher and utility player. Marcus has demonstrated a deep commitment to baseball from a young age, progressing through various levels of the sport—from tee ball and recreational leagues to earning a starting position on his varsity team, which recently qualified for the North Dakota State Class A Baseball Tournament. This summer, he will be playing for the Mandan Chiefs, our Class AA legion baseball team. Marcus’s passion for the game and dedication to continuous improvement are evident in his versatile skill set, allowing him to competently play every position on the baseball field. His talent has already garnered attention from local junior colleges and universities, and he aims to pursue opportunities at even higher levels, potentially out of state.

However, participation in this showcase entails significant financial costs, including flights, accommodation, meals, and other related expenses, all of which must be borne by the player and their family. Therefore, we are respectfully requesting financial assistance from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe to support Marcus in this endeavor. Your support would enable him to showcase his abilities on a prominent stage, which could be instrumental in advancing his athletic and academic aspirations.
Your consideration of this request is greatly appreciated. We are hopeful for your support in helping Marcus seize this invaluable opportunity.
Thank you for your time and attention.
