ROCKPORT -

"Play Ball!"  That's what Little Leaguers in Rockport-Fulton will get to hear soon. 

They'll have a place to play once again thanks to financial support from Country musician Charlie Robison, baseball Hall of Famer Nolan Ryan, the City of Rockport's Parks Department, and the Sports Turf Management Association.

The City of Rockport's Parks Department announced in a press release Wednesday that a group of volunteers, local residents, members of the Sports Turf Management Association and the Little League will begin rebuilding the Memorial Park ball fields on Saturday, January 13th.  Efforts will include replacement of sod and irrigation, laser grading of the infield, mound rebuilding, and seeding.  Equipment, products and services are being provided by several area businesses.  

According to the City's Parks and Leisure Services Director, Rick Martinez, the fields would not have been completed in time for the beginning of baseball season.  "We are so grateful for Charlie Robison's vision, fundraising and awareness concerts, and bringing together all of these incredible organizations to help our youth," stated Martinez

Nolan Ryan, the Round Rock Express baseball team and RS3 Turf Services will also present the Rockport-Fulton Little League with a $10,000 check.
