Glover Ballfield

We are proud to open another season on the two baseball/softball fields in Glover. With new backstops, fencing, and timber frame dugouts underway, we are very excited to play ball!

Work began at the end of April with the chain link fencing around both fields.

Glover Recreation Committee members, Old School Builders, and community  volunteers joined forces on May 24th to raise the timber frame dugouts.

Peter Letzelter-Smith and his 7-year-old son, Dante, didn’t mind a little rain while they lent a hand. Seeing the Old School Builders at work was an educational opportunity.

GREC vice-president, t-ball coach, and parent, Bill Hayes spends time and energy at the field to help get the four  dugouts up in a day.

Keone Maher, of Old School Builders, measures and calculates to ensure everything comes together smoothly. OSB donated much of their time and supplies to the dugout project, which is greatly appreciated by GREC and the Glover community.

 

 

 

 

The most enthusiastic volunteers were under the age of 8. These boys perform the honorary task of pounding wooden pegs into the beams. dugouts-23
