Angels Camp, CA -Calaveras American Little Leaguers are hitting a new field for the opening season games this afternoon. And that’s not all; players will see a lot of changes to the ball park.
Calaveras American League Board Member Rob Maybean says, “There’s a new scoreboard. It is an LED lighted board so it’s really cool. We put in a new outfield fence and dugout covers, so everything looks really great.”
Maybean says all the field renovations were done with money collected at fundraisers or business sponsor donations totaling over $4,000. The league has 10 teams from T-ball to Juniors (13-14 yrs.).
Maybean says they will also be naming the second field after a real team player…Rich Bakke who helped make all this happen, “Were going to dedicate the second field to Rich Bakke who has been instrumental in making this program what it is today.”
The opening ceremonies and field dedication runs from 9-11a.m. today at the Frogtown Field off of Gun Club Road near Angles Camp. Click here for more league information and schedules.
