Baby, it’s cold outside!
How do you keep kids moving when the temperature outside drops? The City of Grand Island had a bright idea–bring the kids indoor! In 2010, the city constructed a 70,000 square-foot Community Fieldhouse in order to provide year-round training opportunities. The building now serves as a multi-sport facility, including baseball, softball, basketball and soccer.
Over the winter break, the Community Fieldhouse provided a baseball clinic for over 60 youth participants.Nebraska-Kearney head baseball coach Damon Day and a former/present UNK players were on-hand to assist the young players.
A Baseball Tomorrow Fund grant provided funding for the purchase of batting cages, pitching machines, portable pitching mounds and pitching tunnels.
