Dryden’s ‘Light Our Ball Diamonds’ project has been litShare Tweet
The Dryden Ball Diamonds Committee has big plans for baseball, and they are recently in the works of getting Phase Three of a four-stage project completed which will see the revamp of the Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds Complex in Ontario. The initiative was dubbed “Light Our Ball Diamonds” and involves development of a pavilion, adding lights to the facilities and installing new bleacher systems.
To celebrate the funding announcements, the group held a quick baseball game then shared a beer and held a wonderful party at the complex. The committee is also hosting the Molson Coors “Victory Season” Mixed Slo-Pitch Tournament on June 22nd – 24th in which 16 teams will slug it out for the title.
The $75,000 Molson Coors Community Cheer grant helped fund the development of the lighting systems for all four baseball diamonds and construction of a two-storey pavilion equipped with a viewing deck. Phase Three involves installation of new bleachers which is scheduled to be completed for this summer.
The Sandy Beach Ball Diamonds host local leagues and inter-provincial tournaments, and its facility will also be used as a social hub for other community functions including their annual night cancer walks, concerts and flea markets. Cheers to a wonderful project that will be sure to bring their community closer together through active living!
