NJ Field of Dreams got a major upgrade! The Field of Dreams is a baseball field that gives both children and adults with physical or mental disabilities a place to play. With the help of supportive volunteers and coaches, South Jersey built its own field of dreams. As you know participating in a baseball game can be a challenge for those who have disabilities. But in essence, the Field of Dreams is a place where baseball is accessible to everyone regardless of the challenge they face.
Building The Field of Dreams
The generosity of others made the entire initiative possible. First of all, the land for the playground was donated by the city of Absecon to be used by the organization. The baseball diamond is at the Dr. Jonathan Pitney Recreation Park Centre. Members from Borgata participated in the transformation of the donated land. They helped to create a baseball diamond where there was once just a field. They made a place where those with special needs can play and receive encouragement that will help them thrive.
And it Just Keeps Getting Better …
The baseball diamond is even nicer now, after receiving some generous contributions. Now there is an electronic scoreboard. In addition, a new concession stand offers free snacks to the players and spectators. Furthermore, there is even a team store where you can buy Field of Dreams branded wear. This infusion of additional funds really helps the place and of course, allows it to grow.
A Good Feeling for Everyone
Moreover, the field gives all players no matter the level of their abilities an even playing field. The volunteers and coaches adapt to the individual needs of the players. They offer support and encouragement. The volunteers help the players of the organization in any way they can. Finally, the Field of Dreams leaves everyone feeling good.
