Ogdensburg Parks and Recreation Department receives grants for baseball and softball fields


The Ogdensburg Parks & Recreation Department announced Friday that it was recently awarded a grant in the amount of $17,862 from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund (BTF).

The grant will provide funding for the purchase of field maintenance equipment and support the city’s youth baseball and softball fields.

The department will use the grant funds to purchase a utility vehicle and spreader, roller, aerator and infield groomer tow-behinds that will be used to improve the quality of youth baseball and softball fields at Montroy Park and other city youth fields.

“Funding from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund will allow the department to purchase equipment that will dramatically upgrade our youth fields, therefore improving the overall quality of programs we offer, as well as those offered by Kiwanis and the Boys & Girls Club. Our primary focus will be to improve Montroy Park and its three baseball and softball fields that are used by hundreds of city youth each year,” said Matthew J. Curatolo, director of Parks & Recreation.

“The Baseball Tomorrow Fund is happy to help the Ogdensburg Parks & Recreation Department purchase new field maintenance equipment,” said Cathy Bradley, Executive Director of the Baseball Tomorrow Fund. “We appreciate the city’s commitment to provide proper field maintenance and safe playing fields for the young players in the community.”

Other major supporters of the project include the Ogdensburg Kiwanis Club and the Ogdensburg Boys and Girls Club.
