The oldest little league baseball field in New England has won a major league upgrade. Peter J. Foley Field beat out five other finalists in a nationwide contest put on Major League Baseball.
Michael Worobel coaches little leaguers at Peter J. Foley Field and he wrote an essay to submit the field into the contest.
“You see a kid when they walk into a big league stadium and their eyes get wide and they take it all in and you see 30,000 or 40,000 people in the stands,” said Worobel.
As winners of the competition, the field will receive a complete field makeover, appearances by MLB talent and/or mascots, ballpark food, music and entertainment.
“For them, this is going to be amazing,” said Worobel. “Just to be able to walk into this field when it's done and see it. I hope it blows their mind away.”
