Dream Catchers Baseball League
Trinity Health Foundation was approached by Dream Catchers Baseball to assist with the construction of sun covers to help protect players, families and other interested spectators from direct sun while they are watching or participating in games.
Dream Catchers is a baseball league designed for children who would be unable to participate in many summer recreational programs due to safety concerns, or a child’s physical needs such as braces, walker or wheelchairs.
Surrey Park District
Trinity Health Foundation has awarded matching funding to the Surrey Park District to assist them in their Slide to the Finish campaign. The Surrey Park District realized that as the city continued to expand, there was a need to create a safe place for kids to play that was a reasonable distance from their home. Currently, there are two parks within the city limits of Surrey and while this may seem adequate neither of the two current parks are centrally located and there are two busy railroad crossings to get to either one of these parks. The Surrey Park District is looking to build a third park in the southwest area of Surrey to safely accommodate the needs of the community.
Magic City Youth Baseball
Trinity Health Foundation has recently awarded funding to Magic City Youth Baseball to raise the height of the fence and add an angled section that will keep foul balls within the field on the Cal Ripken side of the complex. This past baseball season Magic City Youth Baseball had multiple people struck with foul balls. The additional fencing will provide increased safety as it reduces errant foul balls from reaching the viewing areas where small children, parents, and other fans sit to watch games.
