About the Project
Thank you for showing interest in this project!
With 3 baseball fields, Stumpy Creek Park in Iredell County, NC serves as the home field for baseball and softball players of all ages. On game day,
you'll find hundreds of kids from various leagues playing at every level from Tee-ball to 17U. Unfortunately, the wooden-framed batting cages
are falling apart and can not be used by anyone. Over the years, I've spent countless hours in batting cages improving my
swing with my dad and other coaches, and I would like other kids to have the same opportunity.
Fundraising (begins March 2021)
At about $7,000 each, the cages I want to get are expensive but they are safer and will
last much longer than a cheaper alternative. The ultimate goal is to replace BOTH cages. With such a large baseball community,
if everybody donates just a little, we should be able to hit that goal in no time. I will be collecting donations online as well as in person at
various storefronts and events at Stumpy Creek Park.
Removal of Existing Cages
With the help of my fellow scouts and other volunteers, we will safely tear down and dispose of the existing batting cages.
Wherever possible, we will save any materials that can be reused.
Completed: July 29, 2021
Purchase / Installation of New Cage(s)
Once the new cages are purchased and delivered, we will again enlist the help of scouts and other volunteers to assemble the new
frames and hang the new nets. After that, it's time to PLAY BALL! I'm hoping to be able to do this in time for fall ball in 2021.
Materials Ordered: July 22, 2021
Installation: Scheduled for end of August
