Field of Dreams!
Be a part of the Forever 18 Field of Dreams, our new Legacy Field to honor our Truckee Baseball Andrew Metlenko and Mike Ellis who touched our hearts with their enthusiasm and love of our game.
Next Monday, September 8, community members led by The Good Tidings Foundation and Laura & Michael Metlenko will break ground on the reconstruction of the baseball field at Truckee High. The field will be graded, receive new drainage, and be rebuilt with all new grass and infield dirt. Upgrades to the backstop, fencing, and dugouts are included with a newly constructed pitcher’s mound and bases.
Your help is needed: Volunteers are needed to help all week and we hope that parent/player teams will come out and provide some volunteer time to the project. A couple of hours will be a great help! This is truly a direct investment in Truckee Baseball and a great opportunity to share community service with your child. Show up at the field when you can and keep an eye on the progress and needs at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Forever-18-Field-of-Dreams/203740766484193
The Good Tidings Foundation and Laura and Michael Metlenko will lead a team to rebuild the Truckee High School Baseball Field in honor of Andrew Metlenko, a Truckee High School baseball player, who died in a car accident just prior to graduation in 2013. Other donors to the project include Truckee resident and former MLB Star Eric Byrnes, the Oakland Athletics, Robert A. Bothman Inc. and numerous local businesses.
Special donation request:
The team is in search of additional painting support and 8 sheets of 3/4” plywood (pressure treated preferred). Please contact Laura Metlenko or Nina Ski via Facebook if you can help
