The entire project – field, concessions, restrooms, pavilion and playground - will cost approximately $2 million.
The field surfacing can be easily damaged by traditional cleats and therefore will be reserved for challenger baseball teams and partner agencies/programs. The pavilion and playground will be available for the entire community.
We hope to break ground on the field in the Fall of 2016 and complete the field so it’s ready for opening day, Summer 2017.
We anticipate construction to begin after the field construction is completed.
The Town of Webster has generously agreed provide resources to maintain the grounds, conduct general maintenance and clean the restrooms, as it does for its other athletic fields, parks and its Recreation Center.
Volunteers play a critical role in creating a safe environment. Challenger leagues utilize “buddies” who assist the athletes in the areas of batting, base running and defense, as needed. This relationship is a very rewarding experience for everyone involved: Challenger players enjoy the thrill of participation, and their buddies experience first-hand the challenges these individuals face in their daily lives.
Today there are nine Challenger Leagues in the Greater Rochester region, including Fairport, Greece, Honeoye Falls, Penfield, Pittsford, Rush Henrietta, Victor, Webster and the Westside. Each team handles registration separately and plays most games in their own neighborhood.
We’d be delighted to talk with you about getting involved. Please contact us by phone or email.
