Men’s League Softball is coming to Glover Park! To accommodate the metal bat competition, the softball field was expanded by almost an acre last fall. To complete the project, Glover Recreation is building the “Glover Monster Wall” on the left field line of the expanded softball field. The Wall will be approximately 16 feet tall and 80 feet wide. We have already secured the initial grant for materials and we have a crew of volunteers to construct the Monster.
However, we are looking for additional sponsors to purchase the necessary supplies to erect the Wall this April 2014. We are offering to have your business or organization profiled on the Monster for ten years. We will design and purchase the initial banner according to your specifications and we will place the banner on the Wall during the summer season. Please consider supporting this great project and giving your business the visibility to both adult and youth players and fans for years to come.
Here are the possible banner sizes with your one-time donation:
- $100 1′ H by 2′ W vinyl banner (colored text on white background – you choose text and color)
- $250 2′ H by 3′ W vinyl banner (colored text on white background – you choose text and color)
- $500 3′ H by 4′ W vinyl banner (colored text on white background – you choose text and color)
- $1000 4′ H by 5′ W vinyl banner (colored text on white background – you choose text and color)
If you are interested in purchasing a customized banner or providing your own banner, that is an option. You will need to pay the difference if you desire a logo to be printed. However, GREC will provide the standard banner at no additional cost to you.
If you are interested, please contact GREC’s president, Jethro Hayman at 525-4760. We will be seeking sponsorships through April 2014, so time is limited for this unique opportunity.

Currently, Glover Park provides two playing fields to half a dozen youth baseball and softball teams. However, the softball field was not constructed to accommodate adult play. The left field was too shallow. Therefore, we extended the out field by pushing material down hill to increase the playing area. These upgrades would expand the spectrum of the community that can use the fields, without sacrificing youth activities. We would be able to host adult teams and tournaments that generate revenue to keep the Park fiscally sustainable.
