Trail Minor Baseball – Fielding help

Andy Bilesky Park is almost ready, and organizers are now scouring the area for volunteers to staff a number of different venues.

With the help of volunteers, Trail Minor Baseball has almost completed work on Andy Bilesky Park, and organizers are now scouring the area for volunteers to staff a number of different venues for the Little League B.C. Provincials July 20-28.

Volunteers are needed in every aspect of the tournament, from grooming the infield to announcing the game.

“Our host committee has been organizing this event since last summer,” said co-chair of the organizing committee Shannon Morris Ballarin. “We are now able to focus our attentions on the actual tournament and are in need of volunteers for tournament week.”

After leveling the playing field, putting up new fencing, building new dugouts and umpire digs, a small but committed group of volunteers finished laying sod in the infield and are just putting the finishing touches to the park. As  a result, organizers are now seeking volunteers for the concession, 50/50 draws, grounds crew, host-info booth, scorekeepers, score clock, game announcers, and Pointstreak updaters.

Anyone interested in volunteering for a slot or two can email Heather Johnston at h2johnston@shaw.ca or go to the Trail Minor Baseball website www.traillittleleague.ca under the “2012 Provincials” tab.
