York Institute Ball Field
This project utilized grant money from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund organization, a joint effort between Major League Baseball and the Major League Baseball Players Asssociation to construct a baseball field at the York Institute. Previously there was only one field available in the county. This field was utilized by the Babe Ruth League, men’s softball league, and as a soccer field. Scheduling use of the sole field was chaotic and created significant stress and conflict within the community.
A design for the buildings was developed by the building trade's class of York Institute and construction was completed utilizing funds from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund and local, matching funds.
