As a contribution to the City’s renovation of Lazenby Field, the Dads’ Club paid $6000.00 to have the concrete poured for the new dugouts.
FIELD IMPROVMENTS, Fall 2010
The infield at Community #1 was removed and replaced. This includes the infield sod. The whole area was graded and laser leveled to 1 percent from the pitcher’s mound outward. Clay bricks were placed beneath pitches’ mound and home plate.
The cost of this project was $14,000.00, and added a finish to what was done in 2007.
The dugouts at Angell Field were fitted with permanent roof structures at a cost of $8300.00. This will be paid for by way of a grant from the Detroit Tigers Foundation, a division of Iilitchcharities.org/litch Charities.
Finishing touches will be completed in the spring.
