Baseball Field Renovations Underway

A number of renovations are underway at the Red Knight Baseball Complex. Recently, black fencing was installed on the third base line, first base line, and backstop. Two brick pillars adorned with block “T”’s were erected at the baseball field entrance. Future plans include the construction of a decorative brick wall for the base of the back stop.

Previous upgrades in 2017 included the removal of trees and the replacement of fencing in the baseball field parking lot. In 2016, a new scoreboard was installed at the Knight Complex thanks to the generosity of several local individuals and businesses. The six major scoreboard sponsors included Valley Converting, Foster Funeral Homes, Judge Lisa Ferguson, John Ratti/State Farm, NC Sportz of Follansbee, and Trinity Express Care. The new scoreboard cost approximately $25,000 and features LED lighting and displays HOME and GUEST team scores for up to 10 innings, total RUNS and HITS to 99 and ERR (errors) to nine for each team, AT BAT to 99, BALL to three, STRIKE to two, OUT to two and H/E (hit or error) with field position number for the error. To acknowledge the support of our sponsors, their names are permanently displayed across the bottom of the scoreboard. The scoreboard was installed with assistance from Mayor John Parker and City of Toronto.
