10-Year Anniversary Capital Improvement Campaign

We’re celebrating TEN YEARS of bringing smiles to the faces of

  • hundreds of kids with special needs;
  • thousands of buddies who not only assist our players but also learn that our special kids just want to have fun, be on a team, and hit the ball; and
  • hundreds of family members and caregivers who get a brief bit of respite each game day, enjoying a hot dog and watching their player get to play America’s favorite sport.

Along with celebrating ten years, our board of directors determined that several improvements were necessary and several upgrades/enhancements would be good for our ball park.  To build for our future and another successful decade, we embarked on a $450,000 capital improvement campaign the first of 2018 to include:

  • PHASE I:  Replace our playing field surface
  • PHASE II:  Cover our spectator bleachers with cantilevered shade
  • PHASE III:  Enhance the entire experience for players and families with the addition of a small all-inclusive playground to be totally fenced in like the rest of our facility.
