Fall Cleanup Day

In Reality there is NO such thing as “a” cleanup day at the Ball Park at Farragut.  To keep the Park, Field, Stands, Concession Stand, Restrooms, Fence, Field House, et. all in top shape is a Yearly endeavor.  Work, mowing and various projects are always being done to make the Admiral Ball Park first class.  Parents, Players, Coaches and Volunteers put in hours of work and raise the funds needed to make it a facility we can all be proud of.  This DAY was just a starting point for several projects and a lot of work to come.  Thanks to all involved and keep up the good work.
