Elsipogtog First Nation looks to fund ballfield repairs with Jays Care grant

Elsipogtog First Nation’s ball diamonds may be guarded by torn fencing but kids in the community still share laughs as they hit dingers or sprint around the bases.

Soon though, they’ll get upgrades to the facilities thanks to the Field of Dreams program of the Jays Care Foundation. Elsipogtog, about 55 kilometres north of Moncton, is among 15 recipients sharing $1.5 million in baseball infrastructure funding.

The program provides funding to design, refurbish or build spaces to play baseball and is the charitable arm of the Toronto Blue Jays major league baseball team. Full story here.
