The Paradise Minor Baseball Association has been awarded a Field of Dreams grant by the Jays Care Foundation.
The grant offers up to $150,000 for field improvements. President of Paradise Minor Baseball, Craig Walker says the organization is in need of outdoor lights for one of its fields.
The announcement for the Jays Care Foundation came last night, where a group of supporters watched the announcement live. Paradise is the only organization in this province that made the cut.
Walker says theirs is the only organization in the province that doesn’t have lights on their field. The league is growing, with projected numbers of some 600 kids playing this summer.
He says the Town of Paradise has agreed to pay $150,000 towards lights, and right now they are $150,000 short of getting to their goal.
