Carson Raymond Field Proposed Lights Project Funding Complete!

Northside Awarded Baseball Tomorrow Fund Grant To Light Carson Raymond Field

The NCRL Board is excited to announce that Northside Baseball has received a $41,000 grant from The Baseball Tomorrow Fund to complete the funding for our Carson Raymond Field Lighting Project.
The Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF) is a joint initiative between the Major League Baseball Players Association and Major League Baseball designed to promote the growth of youth baseball and softball throughout the world by awarding grants to support field renovation and construction projects, equipment and uniform purchases, coaches training material and other selected program expenses.
With the awarding of the grant, NCRL has raised the required amount to complete the project.  Additionally, we have received approval from the school system to begin the project on March 29th
We have worked closely with the schools to best leverage Spring Break to minimize disruption around their campuses.   We expect to complete the lighting project by the end of April.
Thank you to all our players, families and benefactors who supported our fundraising efforts.
