Thanks to Honesdale Rotary, the Honesdale Little Baseball Association (HLBA) will have two new batting cage pavilions. Rotary members took advantage of a Rotary International matching-grant program to donate $12,000 to the Association for these much-needed pavilions. “The pavilions will enable players to utilize the facilities even during inclement weather,” said Scott Kinzinger, HLBA secretary and project chairman. The pavilions are expected to be constructed this spring at the sports complex on Grove Street. Kinzinger estimates that about 350 youngsters annually use the fields to play competitive baseball.
Honesdale Rotarian Laurie Harrington shepherded the application through the grant process, aided by Rotary Vice President Jordan Ubertini and President Ken Doolittle.
“Honesdale Rotary has a vested interest in the youth of our community,” said Doolittle. “We sponsor a Honesdale Little Baseball team and we are very pleased that we can help the League do even more to foster youth athletics. Play ball!”
The Honesdale Rotary club is part of Rotary International, a service organization of more than 1.2 million members worldwide. Dedicated to helping the communities in which they live and work, as well as promoting international goodwill, the Honesdale Rotary club has invested time and money in projects as diverse as helping the local Friendship House and Little Baseball Association to global polio eradication.
