The Georgetown Slo-Pitch league has donated $50,000 to Halton Hills’ Field of Dreams project.

The money will be used to construct the main washroom building at Trafalgar Sports Park later this year.

“I am delighted to receive this cheque on behalf of the Town,” said Mayor Ann Lawlor at yesterday’s council meeting.

“And I want to thank the Georgetown Slo-Pitch League for their efforts and generosity in supporting upgrades to baseball facilities in our community. Our partnerships with local sports groups mean that programs and facilities are the best possible that can be offered in our small town. Slo-pitch volunteers have certainly stepped up to the plate.”

Georgetown Slo-Pitch League is a non-profit organization and has been in existence since 1990. Projects that have benefitted from their contributions include construction of the first ball diamond at Trafalgar Sports Park, including lighting, dugout covers for diamonds at Gellert Community Park, and donations for general ball diamond improvements at various locations.

”We are happy to once again, assist the Town in helping us provide baseball facilities to the players, both youth and adult,” said Pete Wanner, GSL founder.

“We have some very talented ball players who should be nurtured with facilities that match their requirements to play and grow. We will always be an organization that supports local leagues and players.”

Most recently, the Georgetown Slo-Pitch League was part of a joint effort with Halton Hills Minor Baseball to raise funds for the three premium ball diamonds that opened at Trafalgar Sports Park in 2020 which are part of the Field of Dreams project. Their collaborative efforts raised more than $350,000 for the community.
