The Town of West Hartford has made outstanding improvements to Wolcott Park over the past few years, and has some very exciting enhancements for the baseball field surface, dugouts, and seating areas planned for late this summer.
To complete the upgrade of the field, WHYBL is proposing to raise the money to replace the existing lights with a state-of-the-art lighting system from Musco Sports Lighting.
Musco is the world’s leading sports lighting company and has done several projects in town. The new lights will provide first class on-field lighting, less light spillover off of it, will be more energy-efficient, and will have a smaller footprint. The proposed system is warrantied for 25 years, so this upgrade will ensure that this critical capability is here for several more generations of West Hartford kids.
We are in the permitting process with the town, and pending approval, are aiming to begin construction in August 2022.
