Since 2006 the Reds Community Fund Field Renovation program has underwritten expenses for improvements to area youth baseball fields throughout Reds Country. Upgrades include new ball dirt for infields, turf upgrades in the outfields and backstop and fencing repairs just to name a few. To date more than 350 fields have been renovated throughout Reds Country, creating a safer and positive recreational outlet for area youth. By leveraging the resources of local government and recreational departments, the program has become a collaborative success. These partnerships have allowed the Reds Community Fund to make baseball and softball more accessible to thousands of children, coaches and parents.
