Coaches Field Lighting Support Appeal

Posted by Len Gilbert on March 17, 2011

Piedmont Baseball Softball Foundation (PBSF)  is asking for you to support the lights on Coaches Field. I am very involved with the program as a softball and baseball coach and a board member. In the context of Blair Park and the issues around the proposed development and opposition to that development, I feel that the project to add lights at Coaches has been overshadowed. Adding lights is a relatively easy, minimally impactful way to improve our very limited baseball and softball resources in Piedmont. The PBSF announcement about their campaign for support of the lights is below. Whatever your position on Blair Park, I ask that you consider the benefits for adding lights to Coaches Field.

Attention Parents of Piedmont Baseball and Softball Players of All Ages

We Need Your Support Now for Lights at Coaches Field!

You’ve already heard about PBSF’s commitment to ensuring that the Blair Park Sports Fields project is approved by the City Council. We’re working with many other youth sports organizations and community leaders on this effort and we’re hopeful that Blair Park will become a reality in the near future. However, Blair Park is only part of the solution when it comes to addressing the shortage of usable field space for our local youth baseball and softball players.

We’re writing today to ask for your assistance in supporting the other half of the solution-field lighting at Coaches Field. This issue is on the agenda for the March 21, 2011 Piedmont City Council meeting along with Blair Park and it’s very important for baseball and softball supporters to make their voices heard both in advance of the meeting as well as during public testimony.
