We’re Getting New Lights!
I’m excited to make two special announcements.
- The Town will be completely rebuilding Wolcott Field from the dirt up. You name it, they’re upgrading it: new fences, dugouts, grass, sprinkler system, storage, infield, etc.
- We (West Hartford Youth Baseball) are paying to completely replace the Wolcott Lights with a state-of-the-art system from Musco Sports Lighting.
Pending approval from the town, the anticipated construction start date is early August. We’ve been working with the Town, SLR Engineering, and Musco Lighting to secure plans, permits, and approvals for over 6 months and are scheduled to break ground in early August. The one remaining piece of the puzzle is paying for them! Our fundraising goal is $200,000, and I’m happy to report we’ve already raised 25% of our goal. This is particularly encouraging because this is the first time we’re publicly announcing the project.
We are asking our league parents, alumni, and friends to help us reach this goal by making a donation to the WHYBL Wolcott Lights and Capital Improvement Campaign. Click here to donate online.
Also check out our Wolcott Lights menu of the website to find out more about this effort.
Finally – a huge thanks to all of you for committing to West Hartford Youth Baseball. We will continue to work hard towards meeting our ultimate goal; getting our kids to fall in love with the game of baseball.
