WARWICK, RI — Warwick North Little League has its sights set on $22,000 worth of upgrades for its ball fields including new fencing, restrooms and batting cages, but needs some help making those projects happen.

Warwick North Little League Baseball, in its current location since 1952, has helped to bring parents, players, and families together around the game for 69 years. This year,  to support the annual budget and operating funds, Warwick North Little League Baseball is fundraising on ​Lift Your League​, a virtual fundraising campaign.

 “Through the help of donations from the community, Warwick North Little League Baseball can continue to provide a valuable connection to the local community by offering players, coaches, volunteers, and supporters a safe and meaningful baseball and softball experience,” said Dan Kavanagh, president  of  Warwick North Little League Baseball.

The fundraising campaign is intended to pay for the following projects:

Fencing
With safety being the utmost priority, fencing around the backstop and dugouts is in need of replacement.  The estimates provided range from $5,000 – $12,000.
Bathrooms
The project in our Fieldhouse consists of an overhaul of the current restrooms. Much of the plumbing and fixtures are decades old and in need of updating, the interior walls are cinder block, which are porous and unsanitary. The partitions between stalls have undergone multiple decades of wear and tear and need to be replaced to remain functional.  We hope to bring the restrooms up to quality standards including newly installed walls, new fixtures and partitions, baby changing station and automatic hand soap and drying stations.  The estimates provided range from $5,000 – $6,000.
Batting Cages
Lastly – Our Batting Cages, which were donated by former Major League Pitcher Dan Wheeler (who played LL Baseball at the Pit), need a new ground surface.  The estimates provided range from $1,300 – $4,000.
