Grant supports upgrades: Baseball fund donates $60,000

Special to the PRESS

The City of Port Isabel announced that it was re­cently awarded a grant in the amount of $60,000 from the Baseball Tomor­row Fund (BTF) that will support the Laguna Madre Park Little League Field upgrade, and provide funding for field lights.

The field lighting equipment will be provid­ed through a partnership between BTF and Musco Lighting, Inc., a leader in the sports lighting indus­try.

The City of Port Isabel owns and operates the La­guna Madre Park which includes a Little League Field. This field is used for tee ball, baseball, and softball by the children of the area, the school dis­trict, and the Boys and Girls Club. It is also used as a location for District 24, Texas West Little League Tournaments. The field still has its original lighting, which needs to be removed and replaced for the continued safety of the children who use this facility.
