Woodford Parks Foundation receives grant

The Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF) has awarded the Woodford Parks Foundation (WPF) a US$69,868 grant to fund the installation of Musco Sports lighting equipment on a newly constructed softball field in Versailles, Kentucky. The lighting will help support the continued growth of softball for 260 girls on 17 summer league, middle school, high school and travel teams.

“The Baseball Tomorrow Fund applauds the Woodford Parks Foundation’s efforts to improve its facilities in order to support the growth of youth softball programmes for the Woodford County community,” says Cathy Bradley, executive director of the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. “We are honored to support this effort by providing funding for top quality lighting equipment for one of the softball fields, and we thank Musco for its generous contribution to this project.”

“The completion of this project marks the realisation of a dream for this organisation and the community as a whole,” says Les Anderson, president, Woodford Parks Foundation. “The goal of the Woodford Parks Foundation is to build coalitions to enhance the opportunity for our community to build or renovate our recreational facilities. The construction of this new field and the new artificial turf at community stadium are the benchmarks for the progress our organisation has made in just three years.”

"Musco Sports Lighting is proud to be a part of this project,” added Zach Vroegh from Musco Sports Lighting. “Along with the Baseball Tomorrow Fund, we support the community of Versailles and the Woodford Parks Foundation’s goal in increasing their recreational development and baseball and softball participation among young athletes.”
