Teacher Appreciation Night!!
Many teachers will be at the park!  Maybe yours will be there!?  If so, give them a hug and tell them how much they mean to you!!

You can order and pay for your tickets one of three ways (checks made out to PNDYBL):

In Memoriam: Troy Sprout

The PNDYBL family has lost a beloved member, Troy Sprout (photo below).  Troy passed away on December 16, 2015 after a long and arduous battle with cancer.  He volunteered his time to coach youth baseball in our organization and to improve our fields and facilities.  All children who play PNDYBL baseball and their families, as well as the players and families of every visiting team who plays on our fields, are touched by Troy's kindness and dedication even if they aren't aware of it, because many of the facilities that we use almost daily during the baseball season at our Thomas Jefferson Fields location were built by Troy.  Some of these things include
  • batting cages
  • scoreboard (see the last photo in our slide show below)
  • concession stand (which he also painted)
  • shelving units for equipment storage
  • equipment ramp for the storage shed
  • and many other smaller projects 
What is truly inspirational is that he carried out many of these projects while he was undergoing treatment for his illness.  Troy also did a lot for our organization behind the scenes and preferred to work anonymously.  Our deepest sympathies go out to his family.  He will be missed, but his presence will be felt by us every spring and summer whenever we're at Thomas Jefferson Fields.

"Demonstrate your faith to me without works, 
and I will demonstrate my faith to you from my works."
